REMOTE SUPPORT

YTKO have launched a Bristol Micro-Business COVID-19 Support programme available for the next 2 – 3 months. As a valued partner in our work at YTKO in the region, we hope you can be involved in supporting the project and ensuring support is on the front-line during these critical times. We would appreciate the message that this support is available for free to all micro businesses (less than 10 employees) in Bristol to be distributed through your networks.

Please see the website https://www.outset.org/bristolcovidresponse/ for further details.

To refer people into our programme, please use the following contact addresses:Email: bristolcovidresponse@outset.org

Telephone: 0800 9179 324

Please be advised we have a small team resourced for this programme and are dealing with a high number of enquiries so we may take 1 – 2 working days to respond to your referral. When you do refer someone into our programme, if you can provide brief information on the type of advice they need then we can save some time in dealing with the enquiry.

Dependant on demand from the local businesses, we will be looking for expert partners to deliver remote sessions and 1:1 advice. If there are any ways that you feel your organisation could add benefit to this programme, please let us know. We are keen to ensure this programme enhances and collaborates with existing support so that local businesses can get the most appropriate support available. If your organisation is running training sessions or any bespoke crisis response support, please send information to us so that we can share where relevant. We are developing an area on the website to showcase our collaborators on this project (organisations who are referring clients; supporting with delivery; offering their expertise etc.) and would like to have yourselves included. If you are happy to do so, could you please provide me with a high-res logo and website url.
