The government has created a business support hub to accumulate all of the relevant advice, measures and schemes amid the coronavirus outbreak.

By accessing the hub, businesses can find out how to obtain the services, schemes and grants that have been made available to them throughout the UK, who is eligible for schemes, when the schemes open and how to apply.

Sections have also been dedicated to advice for self-employed people and sole-traders, your responsibilities as an employer, how to manage your business during coronavirus, business closures and how you can access help.

National President Stuart Reddish said: “It is great to see that the government has created a hub for all of their business advice and schemes surrounding Covid-19.

“The NFRN has already implemented a similar approach to its website, where all Covid-19 headlines have been collated within the protect section.

“The government has stated that it is working closely with Business Representative Organisations to support the national response to coronavirus and ensure business voices are heard.

“The NFRN will continue to do its part to ensure that independent store owners have access to sufficient support and funding.”
