COVID-19 Impact and Recovery survey by UK Space Agency

As the Lead Government Department (LGD) for the UK Space Sector, the UK Space Agency is responsible for engaging with the industry stakeholders and with government in order to understand the effect of this unprecedented period of disruption on the sectors’ activities, services and outputs plus look at sector recovery. Our role in the Space Security team is assisting the sector in identifying, managing and mitigating the disruption caused by this crisis. Furthermore, as the LGD for the sector, we can engage across government to ensure access to support measures for organisations in key sectors such as Space.

In line with other sectors, we require regular reporting for onward notification to BEIS and the Cabinet. This assists the cross-government coordinated response to support the vital sectors and address issues as they arise, and supports industry too. This data, including a RAG assessment, is collated to provide an anonymised output for the sector, which can identify any current or arising concerns in the provision of key services to the public and other public services.

If you have any questions about this reporting engagement and/or your resilience to this disruption, please contact us and we can seek to support you. If you have any questions about company-specific business support, our colleagues at can assist.

We understand this is a difficult period with many demands on your time and staffing. Thank you for your support in ensuring a beneficial supportive relationship between the sector and Government.

We appreciate your help in completing these surveys. Your feedback will help government develop an accurate picture of the impact of the virus on businesses, and offer early sight of emerging issues and help shape further interventions.

Thank you in advance for your response.
