How to access government COVID-19 financial assistance

We are all starting to get our heads around how coronavirus will affect us personally, along with our businesses, our communities, country and world and I don’t think there will be very many people at all who will be unaffected.  It has been a relief then that a number of governments around the world have rapidly pulled together a range of support packages, and while these packages will cushion, rather than eliminate the financial impact of coronavirus, we have heard several stories of how unusually fast this government support can be accessed.

It seems that along with the medical profession, banks, governments, social services and other organisations are going out of their way to do what they can to help people and businesses survive.

The following sites are the best places to read up on and access business support and advice in our three biggest customer locations.
