Business is our priority with a new helpline offering support through Covid-19.
Local businesses adversely affected by Covid-19 can now access information via a dedicated business service being offered by MidCoast Council.
Council’s Business Liaison Service is dedicated to connecting local businesses with government support and advice to help navigate this difficult time.
To access the Business Liaison Service, call 7955 7777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Mayor David West says it’s one way Council can help businesses when they need it most.
“We understand that Covid-19 has seriously impacted our community, particularly our businesses,” Mayor West said
“MidCoast Council’s Business Liaison Service will ensure business operators can talk to someone who can help them find the right information they need.”
The aim of the support service is to take some of the stress out of working out what help is available and ensure businesses are accessing the right assistance and getting what they deserve.
“Our priority for our businesses is to ensure they feel supported, well informed and know where to access advice, financial support and practical help on getting through this crisis,” said Mayor West.
“We’re not the experts but we can certainly help put you in contact with the advice you need. We strongly suggest as a first move, all businesses contact their accountant.”
Council is actively seeking information to help local businesses in this difficult time and will regularly communicate with the business community via the Council website, Destination Barrington Coast and local business chambers.
“Council has strong relationships with both the State and Federal governments and will continue to work with our colleagues in these areas to drive support for business across the Barrington Coast.”
There is also a range of information and links available on Council’s website
Community members wanting to support local businesses should check out the listings on Barrington Coast business hub to see how their favourite businesses have adjusted to the current situation. Tourism and small business operators are invited to email email@example.com to be listed.
