As the COVID19 lockdown begins to ease, Perth & Kinross Council’s Economic Development service is focused on ensuring businesses in the area are furnished with all relevant information and can access all channels of support open to them.

Crucially, the aim is to sustain businesses and to work together to bolster the economy and entrepreneurship as we move into the recovery period. This includes supporting businesses of all sizes and sectors and helping those now unfortunately out of work. 

Although some channels of financial assistance have now closed, various measures continue to remain in place alongside practical advice and support such as training for staff, guidance for various sectors and webinars focused on recovery. we have outlined the basic information here, stating eligibility and offering links to apply where relevant.

As you begin to scrutinise the financial resilience and resource contingency of your business we would like to assure you of our continued support.  If you find your business is in critical financial straits, please contact businessdevelopment@pkc.gov.uk.
