The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has launched a single webpage with full details on all the latest help and support for businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Signposts to all the relevant and current information can be found on the webpage www.lancashirelep.co.uk/covid-19 to make it easy for employers to find out about the support available and where they can seeks advice.

Chairman of the LEP, Steve Fogg, said: “There is a vast amount of information available for businesses looking to access some of the economic support packages which have been announced by Government in response to the Covid-19 crisis. Unfortunately not all of the advice available is accurate or at times may seem to be conflicting.

''The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership understands that businesses need to have confidence that the advice they receive, is from legitimate sources. Many are experiencing unprecedented challenges for survival and they don't need the added complication of not knowing how to access the support and advice on offer.

Visitors to the webpage will be able to find out about a wide range of information including:
