The Marches LEP Coronavirus Business Support Survey

The Marches LEP today launched one of the biggest-ever surveys of businesses across the region to measure the full scale of the economic impact of coronavirus in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.

The survey Marches LEP Coronavirus Business Support Survey aims to find out exactly what impact the COVID-19 outbreak is having on our businesses, whatever size they are and whatever sector they operate in. And importantly, it aims to find out exactly what support businesses need now and in the coming weeks. It can take less than two minutes for a business owner to complete.

The LEP wants to present Government with comprehensive evidence of the scale and type of support needed by our businesses as well as give a clear picture of what is happening on the ground in our region.
