Business Support- Do you need help?

The scale of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our businesses, residents and the wider community calls for clear strategic direction to support our businesses during this global crisis.

Following the Chancellor’s announcement of financial support for the economy, Congleton Town Council setup a working group to focus on the needs of our towns businesses to ensure the right support is made available.

We are committed to listening to businesses and are already working with a Business Advisory Group made up of Accountants, Solicitors, Estate Management and Business Advisors to provide advice to business owners within Congleton. The Business Advisory Group will provide one-to-one support, to understand the significant and singular challenges our business community is facing from COVID-19. If you would like to access this advice, please complete the short form below and press send.

Our immediate focus has been to provide links to business support schemes as quickly as possible and to signpost businesses and individuals to the right area of support.

Our main referral point for local businesses is Cheshire East Council.
