The purpose of this plan is to outline the continuity arrangements Avado have in place to safeguard our provision. The policy identifies reasonable measures in place to respond to and be able to mitigate business risks where there is a potential of significant damage to business operations.

This Plan is supplementary to our main Business Continuity Plan and is to consider those incidents that will have a significant impact on the operation of our provision following a major crisis or disaster or an event, and which creates the need for short-term closure or suspension of activity.
