We are working hard to make sure we stay on top of all the information, grants, funding, loans, schemes, changes in regulations and rules and support that could help you and your business survive through this time. We are real people who are here to speak with you about your specific situation and try and help you unravel the right information and support for you.

In the Covid 19 Business Support Update PDF, please find summaries and quick guides to all the support available currently. This is updated regularly (the issue date is at the top of the document) and contains lots of the links, guidance and details of everything we are learning at the Hub which could be useful to you and your business. Please check this regularly as details are changing and more are being added almost daily.

However, you can also find more information, including links to free online webinars and support at the New Anglia Growth Hub business toolkit for latest support and guidance  https://www.newangliagrowthhub.co.uk/covid-19-business-toolkit/. 


If you have not done so already, you can also sign up for the Growth Hub’s newsletter and when we receive any updates, we will circulate these to our clients: https://www.newangliagrowthhub.co.uk/newsletter-signup/


Other sources of support and information we also recommend you review include:


Gov.uk – the best source of information currently is the Gov.uk site and this is being updated all the time. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/covid-19-support-for-businesses


Local Authorities/Councils Websites – These are all being managed and are set up slightly differently, but we do recommend you check your own local authorities website for the information that relates to your business. This will be the local authority you pay your rates or Council Tax too. If you want to check who your local authority is please use this website and enter your postcode: https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council


Banks – all major banks do now also have Covid-19 policies in place and it is worth talking with them and your accountant regarding financial support too. Please visit your own banks’ website first, as banks are prioritising their own customers first. Inside the PDF you will find a link to over 40 other approved financing partners for the CBILS schemes if you require them.


Business Support Helpline Online – this site is also supported and run by the Government and therefore is again like the Gov.uk site will be one of the first places to be updated and has been useful for some clients. https://www.businesssupport.gov.uk/coronavirus-business-support/
