Useful links and resources for SIMS users

Capita have set up a new link on their service portal that does not require a sign-in, meaning all their previous material is available to all. There is also an extra link at the top to resources that might help in the current circumstances (Yellow tag). Much of these resources are documents or videos. They have also set up daily webinars in addition to their usual programme, though they require the usual registration to access the link to join.
