COVID 19 BUSINESS SUPPORT - LATEST INFORMATION FOR BUSINESS

We are currently facing the biggest civil and economic challenge for a generation and Warrington companies are understandably anxious about the future.  On the 17th March the UK government announced a series of business support measures as part of a £330 billion economic aid package.  Local Authorities have been tasked with administering the Business Rate and grant components, however specific details on how to award these will not be available until early April.  Please monitor Warrington Borough Council’s holding page for when these instructions appear:  www.warrington.gov.uk/business

The Cheshire & Warrington Business Growth Hub is also providing regular updates for Business Support and these can be found here:  http://candwgrowthhub.co.uk/covid-19/

This is complemented by central government who are maintaining guidance and advice here:  www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19

We wish everyone well in the challenging weeks ahead and rest assured that we are working closely with all relevant partners to support Warrington businesses as best we can.

Take care and stay safe.
