In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, Growth Platform have compiled a suite of resources and support for businesses and employers in Liverpool City Region who may be affected. 

LEP Chair, Asif Hamid MBE stated:

“It is essential at this challenging time that all of the City Region’s organisations work together to support our business community and residents. To that end, working with business support organisations, we have today published a dedicated section of the Growth Platform website with the latest information for business relating to COVID-19, and are contacting over 10,000 local businesses to generate detailed intelligence on the range of businesses impacted and the scale and nature of that impact to inform local support and further asks of Government.

“We know already that many businesses in our retail and visitor economy are severely affected so it is vital that we get the support activated as soon as practically possible and we are working with partners to press Government to make the support announced for business in the budget available without delay.”
