Blue Mountains Businesses Need Support Now

Blue Mountains Businesses Need Support Now Main Image

My office has been inundated with letters, emails, and phone calls from local businesses who have been let down and left behind by the lack of support available to them to get through this lockdown.

We all know how important it is to do the right thing, but no one should ever be forced to risk losing their business as the price for following the health advice.

I'm calling urgently for changes to the eligibility criteria so that newer and smaller businesses aren't locked out of support, for urgent rent relief for businesses that are still paying out to landlords despite being made to close, for a commitment that businesses will get back the majority of their lost revenue from this lockdown, and for urgent extra resourcing to Service NSW to expedite the processing of approved grants.

Thank you to all those who signed my open letter to the Treasurer!
