COVID-19 business support webinar

27th January 2021, 2:25pm | By David |

Wiltshire Council is hosting a live online webinar on Wednesday 3 February at 7pm for businesses in the county to find out more about the latest COVID-19 grants available to them.

 

The broadcast will explain each of the grant schemes and will also feature some public health information and advice for businesses. There will also be an opportunity for businesses to ask questions.

 

Sam Fox, Corporate Director for Place and Environment, and Kate Blackburn, Director of Public Health, will help guide businesses through the latest information and regulations.

 

Business owners can submit their questions about COVID-19 grants, and public health questions that may relate to their business, by emailing communications@wiltshire.gov.uk no later than 5pm on Tuesday 2 February. Though please note, the council cannot discuss individual cases during the webinar.

 

The live briefing will be broadcast via Microsoft Teams and viewers should use this link to access the broadcast. Some users on mobile and tablet devices may need to download the Microsoft Teams app from their app store to be able to access the webinar. The briefing will also be recorded and available via the council’s YouTube channel as soon as possible afterwards (search for Wiltshire Council on YouTube).

 

Cllr Philip Whitehead, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said: “We know that the COVID business grants can be confusing, so this webinar will be the perfect opportunity for people to find out which grants they may be eligible for.

 

“We want to give Wiltshire businesses as much support as we can during these difficult times, and don’t want anyone to miss out on funding, so I would urge as many as possible to join this broadcast and to send in their questions, so we can give them the help and advice they need.”

 

So far, Wiltshire Council has issued more than £116m in grants to businesses to help them get through this very challenging and unpredictable period. The council has also launched the latest round of the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG, also known as Discretionary Payments) to help support Wiltshire businesses today.
