In Detail

This is a challenging time for local businesses with the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

On Monday (16 March 2020), the Prime Minister said people should work from home where possible and limit non-essential travel.

It goes without saying that this situation is unprecedented, and Findit will closely follow the Government’s advice and guidelines and work with support organisations to bring all our members the current business information.

Your local Growth Hub will provide the latest business guidance and will work with you on all aspects of Coronavirus and what employers need to consider and do.
