Breakfast Briefing

Support for Allerdale Tourism Businesses

Over the course of the past 18 months Allerdale Borough Council’s Place Development Team has held quarterly breakfast briefings at different venues across Allerdale. The purpose of the briefings is to keep Allerdale tourism businesses up to date with the latest developments in the sector, update businesses on the work of the Council, highlight and share best practice and provide a networking opportunity. Given the Covid-19 outbreak we’re doing things a little differently and bringing you as much useful information as we can online.

Essential information about how to access Government support funding for businesses during the Covid-19 outbreak can be found here. Guidance on safely reopening your business following the easing of lockdown restrictions can be found here.
