Boost; supporting Lancashire businesses

Boost is Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub. In the current situation, focus has changed from growth to supporting businesses as they feel the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The #BoostYourRecovery service is available to all Lancashire business owners.

Businesses can access the helpline by ringing 0800 488 0057 to discuss all business issues related to the coronavirus outbreak. The team will advise where possible, as well as directing businesses to expert advisers across Lancashire.

Businesses can also access the recovery hub at any time – HERE.  The hub includes resilience guides, access to Government updates and partner advice as well information about webinars, virtual drop-in sessions and other support.

Skills for work

The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s Skills and Employment Hub has, in partnership with over 50 organisations, created to help the people of Lancashire gain the skills they need to succeed as we begin to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The organisations have come together to provide over 100 different offers of fully funded and free support for people in Lancashire.

The website provides Lancashire residents with one place to get information about skills and employment support, with coaching and wellbeing support throughout.
