The Government is working closely with Business Representative Organisations and Trade Associations to support the national response to coronavirus, including ensuring messages from Government are heard by all businesses and that business voices are heard by Government.
Below is a selected list of organisations you can speak with to get advice. Many of these websites also include sector specific guidance and Q&A. This list doesn’t cover all trade associations and business representatives – but you may find it a helpful starting point. Many of the trade associations and Business Representative Organisations listed below are happy to hear from non-members and members alike, so do get in touch to find out more.
