In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Growth Hub Advisers are available for initial telephone discussions and signposting for specialist financial advice. We may also be able to fund a day’s specialist financial support.
All members of our team will be liaising with business contacts and stakeholders to understand the issues that businesses are facing.
Online workshops will be held in the coming days and weeks on issues related to business resilience, cashflow management, and home working methods.
Meanwhile, we will be convening regular conference calls with business support and membership organisations to understand issues businesses are facing and communicate these to Government to help inform future support.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has asked Growth Hubs to report weekly on the economic impact. Where there are issues identified that Government could help resolve, we will escalate these through this channel.
We are working hard to provide an additional support package for local businesses and will be updating you as soon as we can.
