Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and the Business Partnership Alliance understand the local business community is under extreme pressure and faces huge and unprecedented challenges as a result of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
As a council, we want to ensure all voices from our local business community are heard and that appropriate support is available, which is why we are teaming up with the Business Partnership Alliance to launch the COVID-19 Business Impact Survey.
From today, business owners and the self-employed can take part in the short survey to express their views on a range of issues and highlight the support required in the short, medium and long term. The survey will help provide a better understanding of the support needed locally so the Business Partnership Alliance, supported by relevant statutory bodies, can lobby for business needs on their behalf.
Supporting the launch of the survey, Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Mealla Campbell said:
“We are delighted to join forces with the Business Partnership Alliance to launch the COVID-19 Business Impact survey today. The information gained through this survey will be invaluable in helping provide a better understanding of how our local business community is being affecting and what support is needed. I would encourage all business owners and the self-employed to complete this survey and I would like to thank you in anticipation of your help at this difficult time.”
Chair of Business Partnership Alliance, Adrian Farrell said:
“The Business Partnership Alliance is about listening to and reflecting back what support businesses need to our key decision makers at a local and regional level. The feedback you will provide through this survey will help us all plan for the future and allow the BPA to advocate on your behalf during these unprecedented times.”
The survey closes this Friday 1 May 2020. To take part in the survey please click here.
