Kent County Council (KCC) has set up a free helpline for businesses. This service seeks not to duplicate what is already available in the advice and help available from government to businesses in Kent, but to give a local perspective. The number to call is: 03333 602300
KCC has put a 12 month repayment holiday on any loans taken out by local businesses with the various local investment schemes for business development and job creation.
KCC is also working with the NFU to help recruit local labour for the harvest season ahead and helping the sector access those laid off from other parts of the local economy as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Details to follow.
