Resilience is a team game: #AskForHelp

In recent weeks, many businesses have faced some of the most significant challenges to their operations in living memory due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Boost has listened to the concerns of Lancashire businesses and in response we have repositioned our service from growth support to resilience support.

In March we launched the #AskForHelp campaign, a free service available to all Lancashire businesses impacted by the coronavirus to give them a place to turn.

We have a dedicated helpline 0800 488 0057 to access key information on cash grants, tax relief and loans, as well as further support available through the government.

We also have a dedicated Hub on the Boost website which can be accessed at which is updated with the latest government and partner advice.

In addition, we have a number of tools businesses can use including our ‘keeping strong checklist’ to help remain resilient.

Our team is here to help you plan your recovery

Through the #AskForHelp campaign we have helped thousands of businesses already by advising and guiding them to key information through our helpline and website.

For some businesses, thoughts may be turning to recovery and our message remains the same. We’re here to help you respond and bounce back from this crisis.

Our team is here to help you plan your recovery both in the short and long-term. We have a range of webinars and other support available to all Lancashire businesses to help you understand what you need to do to bounce back.

We have also launched a unique support offer fully-funded by Lancashire County Council in association with Forward Thinking. The Success GPS coaching programme is designed to help businesses emerge stronger from coronavirus. You can find out more information about this on our website.

You’re not alone. #AskForHelp.
