Chamber launches £100,000 Covid-19 fund to support members
East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) has introduced a £100,000 financial package to help support members affected by Covid-19.
The fund will enable Chamber members which have been impacted by the lockdown restrictions in place because of coronavirus to claim a rebate of up to 100% of their membership fees, for the next three months.
The fund is part of the Chamber’s ongoing response to the coronavirus crisis, which has also seen it introduce a dedicated online portal to give members access to key information, as well as share positive news stories about how members are contributing to the national effort to fight the pandemic.
The Chamber has also introduced a comprehensive programme of free webinars, virtual networking events and interactions with MPs and other policymakers for members.
Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said:
“These are extremely challenging times for business, and we need to work together to get through them.
“Businesses need a support network around them now, more than ever, and this is just one more way the Chamber is helping its members.
“It is absolutely vital that businesses stay connected and have a voice. Our members can be confident that their challenges are being fed back to local authorities and Government to help shape their response to this national crisis and provide the help where it’s needed the most.”
