//An update from the Sheffield City Region Inward Investment team

Published 24th March 2020 at 1:45pm

In these unprecedented times, we would like to reassure you that our inward investment team and Growth Hub is open for business. We are following all the NHS and Public Health England guidance in terms of social distancing, hand hygiene and avoiding unnecessary travel and meetings.

COVID-19 is the biggest challenge we face in modern times. This means that we must all follow the latest guidance from the NHS and Public Health England (PHE) and look out for each other in order to reduce the risks of spreading the virus. The announcements made by Government will affect us all.

Please be assured, we will do everything we can to support you and our local economy during this difficult time. There is additional support for businesses and workers and information and this can be found at www.scrgrowthhub.co.uk/covid-19 which also has links to the latest advice from Government, the NHS and other trusted sources.

We are working tirelessly to ensure South Yorkshire has what it needs to respond to the virus. This includes being in close contact with the Local Resilience Forum, NHS, Public Health England, Police and Government and we would like to reassure everyone the best preparations are being made.

Over the coming weeks we will be bringing you regular updates via e-newsletters, to ensure that you have access to the very latest information and guidance and to signpost you to any useful external sources.
In the meantime, if you would like to keep informed about relocating a business to the Sheffield City Region, our Locate in SCR web tool can help.

Locate in SCR is free-to-use and includes vital information on demographics, workforce, consumer spending, business, industry, talent and incentives available through the Sheffield City Region. It enables you to ‘drill down’ and compare the different areas to gain a true, impartial picture of the towns and cities throughout the region, including the workforce potential, their education and wages. Try out the web tool – it really does give a comprehensive overview of what the Sheffield City Region has to offer.
We wish you all the best as you stay safe and we all do our bit to reduce the risks in our communities.
