A new website designed to co-ordinate Humber businesses’ contributions to the region’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been launched.
The ‘Coronavirus Community Support’ hub has been created by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership to help match the growing number of requests being made for businesses to help, and the offers of support coming in from the region’s businesses.
The website lists details of the support being requested by public sector and community organisations involved in the coronavirus response. Requests include a call for businesses prepared to donate surplus stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE) or hand sanitizer, as many have done already, and an invitation for those interested in converting existing production lines to manufacture the products to get in touch.
Current requests include:
- Hand sanitiser
- Bottles for hand sanitiser
- Storage and logistics
- Surplus food and groceries
Meanwhile, with most traditional networking opportunities closed off, the LEP is working with business membership and support organisations across the Humber to build up a database of business volunteers who are willing to help local firms.
Business leaders who think they may be able to help by offering a little bit of their time for an informal conversation with another business are asked to register their interest on the website.
