ACUTE RESPONSE 

The challenges we faced were immediate and acute. Effective support, strong advocacy and focused intervention were our first priority.

Addressing our immediate and acute challenges and effective fire-fighting of these challenges was our first priority when the pandemic struck.

We provided direct, practical help to Plymouth businesses at pace through administering business grant support.

We continued to provide critical support wherever we could add value for as long as businesses needed emergency support.
