We want to hear from you

COVID-19 Business Adaption program

COVID-19 Business Adaption program is an initiative to support small businesses at this uncertain time that is the coronavirus pandemic currently facing the world. After pulse-checking over 50 businesses in the Ipswich Region, this program was developed to accompany Federal and State Government resources for business. Our objectives are to promote business continuity and encourage businesses to adapt, overcome, and improvise.
