Survey launched to build snapshot of South Kesteven’s economy

InvestSK has launched a new survey to understand how businesses in South Kesteven are dealing with the impact of the coronavirus crisis.

The council-owned economic growth and regeneration company is inviting local businesses to explain how the current climate is affecting their operations, share their ideas for further central Government interventions and outline what additional support they’d like to see in place at a local level.

The results will help InvestSK to build a better picture of the local economy and inform how support programmes are designed to have most impact as we move towards the recovery phase.

Cllr Kelham Cooke, Chairman of InvestSK and Leader of South Kesteven District Council, said: “InvestSK is working hard to make sure businesses know what support is available to help them cope with the impact of Covid-19 and, crucially, how to access it.

“The team has responded to hundreds of enquiries from local businesses in recent weeks and created a dedicated hub on our website to collate all the relevant Government support measures for businesses during the pandemic.

“But we need to know more about how our businesses are coping during this difficult time and if the support available is enough. That’s why we’ve launched this survey and are inviting all businesses in the district to have their say.”

The results of the survey will be shared with Central Government and InvestSK’s strategic partners across the county to help inform what support programmes are offered locally.
