There’s no question about it, the ongoing coronavirus crisis is a hard blow for many businesses. However, there are various new business opportunities which have arisen because of it.
New Business Opportunities – Can you help the Government?
The government is looking for businesses to help with the response to coronavirus. Here are a few of the services that they need help with:
- hotel rooms
- transport and logistics, for moving goods or people
- manufacturing equipment
- warehouse or office space, for medical use or storage
- expertise or support on IT, manufacturing, construction, project management, procurement or engineering
- medical testing equipment
- medical equipment design
- protective equipment for healthcare workers, such as masks, gowns and sanitiser
- social care or childcare
You’ll be asked some questions about the type of support you can give. Expect them to contact you quickly if your help is required.
Have your company number to hand and complete the online Government form here if you think you might be able to offer your services.
