Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Business Advice and Information

Following the Chancellor’s announcement on Tuesday 17th March, new measures have been issued to support businesses affected by the restrictions placed on individuals during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

We have detailed them below, but we would urge you to place your enquiries directly through the main Ashford Borough Council website. Call volumes to the main Council switchboard are likely to be very high during the next few weeks, so we would recommend getting information on their website or to sign up to their COVID-19 updates on their website wherever possible.

The AshfordFor team will relay the most up-to-date information as quickly as possible via our social media channels and redirect you to the relevant platforms. Our team will guide and support you as much as possible during this difficult time, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on social media.

If you want to find out more and discuss your options with business advisers please contact the Kent & Medway Growth Hub Coronavirus Business Support hotline. Call 03333 602300 8:30am-5pm Monday-Friday to speak with an adviser.
