A new business support helpline has been launched to help businesses in Largs and Millport navigate the extensive support strands and funding opportunities available to them.

In the wake of COVID-19, the local economic landscape has changed significantly, with many more businesses in need of support and assistance as they try to ride the storm.

At the same time, the menu of options for business support has become increasingly more complex, meaning businesses are looking for assistance to identify the most appropriate support for their individual needs.

Any business in North Ayrshire seeking assistance can contact a single helpline number – 0330 678 1611.

The helpline will be operational, Monday – Thursday, 9.00am to 5.00pm and Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm, with calls being charged at local rate.
