Humber organisations join forces to support businesses during Coronavirus

The Humber LEP, the four Humber Local Authorities and membership and business support organisations from across the Humber have joined forces to co-ordinate the local response to the economic impact of the coronavirus.

A new region-wide economic resilience group is now meeting weekly to pool information on the issues affecting businesses, share resources and ensure businesses can access support.

The Humber LEP is providing daily briefings on local and national support initiatives so that all organisations talking to Humber businesses have access to consistent and up-to-date information.

With the national support offer continuing to expand and change, the group is also collating issues and feeding them in to central government through the LEP, ensuring that the concerns of the region’s businesses are known in Whitehall.

In a joint statement, the group members said: “The coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented and extremely challenging situation for businesses across the Humber.

“We are working together to support Humber businesses through this difficult period and will do everything we can to ensure that they get the help they require.”

How to access business support

The central point of access for business support in the Humber region is the Humber Business Growth Hub. The Growth Hub brings together information on all support initiatives and can answer questions and signpost to the most appropriate help.

To access support contact growth.hub@humberlep.org.
