Business support information in relation to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

As no doubt you will be aware, the Prime Minister has recently pledged to support millions of businesses through the coming months in light of the threat to normal operations from COVID-19. The Chancellor set out temporary measures yesterday (17/3/2020) and announced that support packages will be available for businesses, to help them deal with the coronavirus and its effect on organisations. Further announcements are due in the coming days.

Information about what has been proposed so far can be found on this page on the Southend-on-Sea Borough Council website: Business Support during the coronavirus outbreak

This page will be updated as and when new information is available and also links through to a page on the Government website which has further details of how to access these packages.

Please check this page regularly for updated information and we send best wishes for you and your business at this difficult time
