Join us for the first in a webinar series offering needs-led support to address areas of concern identified by small businesses in Newport. In this webinar Business in the Community (BITC) will be summarising funding, including access to grants, loans and job retention schemes, and sharing thoughts on securing insurance to cover business interruption during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This will be an opportunity to hear from Business in the Community member organisations, who will share best practice, areas that have been a challenge and how they are coping and the support they offer. We will also signpost to helpful resources.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, small businesses are facing huge challenges to continue to survive: a drop in sales, cash flow issues, staff retention and sustaining the supply chain.  BITC is offering this series of three webinars between February and March 2021, to provide an opportunity to hear how businesses have coped. To share best practice in areas that have been a challenge and for other organisations to signpost support available.
