South East Business Support

With the recent bushfire devastation in regional NSW, the NSW and Commonwealth Governments have provided support to businesses and communities in affected communities. Current Grants are soon coming to an end so it is imperative that you access now. However, the need for assistance has only been amplified by the COVID‑19 crisis. Christine Quick, Community Lead – Bushfire Business Support told the Beagle "EY have been in discussions with the Department of Regional NSW about delivering tailored and intensive support for the affected communities and in particular the small and medium sized businesses in those regions.

"We have established  4 virtual Business Support Drop-In Centres, one in each local government area across Bega Valley, Eurobodalla, Snowy Monaro and Kangaroo Valley/Southern Shoalhaven. "These Drop-In Centres provide free, tailored support needed by local businesses to help them move from the immediate bushfire response phase into a mid-term recovery phase. 

"Each virtual Business Support Drop-In Centre is staffed by an EY Senior Manager and a local Community Lead. Christine said "I am the Community Lead for Eurobodalla and responsible for meeting with local business owners; identifying business needs; creating a support roadmap and referring business owners to relevant services. I have access to guidance on all support available to businesses in regional NSW."

"My contact details are below and I am keen to meet with any small businesses that may benefit (over the phone initially) to make sure they are accessing all available resources and support." Christine Quick
