The council has a skilled team of business advisors who are well-positioned to support businesses during these unprecedented economic times.
Business support teams will endeavour to help match business redundancies made in the city as a result of coronavirus pressures to opportunities that have arisen during the pandemic.
The council’s business support teams will provide advice and guidance on safe ways of working for any business-owners or staff members in the city who are concerned about taking the next step back to work. Advice is now available on what grants, loans and furlough option are available to individual businesses.
Councillor Darren Hale, deputy leader of Hull City Council, said: “Business-people in Hull and the Humber will no doubt be experiencing some of the toughest times they have ever faced. It is vital that businesses of all sizes are helped to get through this difficult period so our economy can continue to flourish when we get through this.
“We are urging businesses in the region to contact our specialist business support team to find out what support is available to them.”
The council’s business support team is available through two points of contact. Those with access to email should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01482 300301 during business hours.
