Welsh Business Support
GOV.UK

The UK has published 14 guides covering a range of different types of work. Many businesses operate more than one type of workplace, such as an office, factory and fleet of vehicles. You may need to use more than one of these guides as you think through what you need to do to keep yourselves, employees and members of the public who use your services safe.

Local Authorities

In addition businesses in the Live Events Industry also qualify for funding distributed by individual local authorities relating to the retail and hospitality sector. These grants are often linked to the initial Non Domestic Rates Grants that were announced by the UK Government in March 2020. Subsequent rounds of discretionary funds have been administered locally subject to local authority interpretation of these grants. Click on your local authority logo below to find more support.

Personal Health and Mental Wellbeing

The important thing to remember when you are facing a personal crisis or feel you are on your own, is to remember that you are not. The saying goes "A problem shared is a problem halved." So pick up the phone to a friend or colleague, use the members directory at WeMakeEvents.Cymru to find someone in the same work area, employment situation or just pick someone at random and tell them about it. We are a truly supportive industry and we don't want anyone to go through this alone. Below there are also some links to professional organisations that will also be able to help.
