Boost Business Lancashire are hosting a series of free online webinars to support businesses at this time.  Find more details and register for the webinars.

The webinars include ‘Creating Video Content During Lockdown’; ‘Thrive and Survive’, and ‘Accessing the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme’.

Boost has changed their focus from growth to supporting businesses as they feel the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.  The #AskForHelp service is available to all Lancashire business owners. You can call them on 0800 488 0057 to discuss all business issues related to the coronavirus outbreak. Their team will advise where possible, as well as directing businesses to expert advisers across Lancashire.

Elsewhere the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have made available a new online Business Support finder tool. The tool allows Business leaders to undertake a self – assessment to best identify  eligibility towards local and national Covid – 19 business support and funding. More details can be found on the GOV.UK website.
