A new digital platform has been launched to help support companies across Tees Valley during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Buy Local Tees Valley is designed to connect local people with businesses and local tradespeople across the region that are still open or operating in the face of the outbreak.
The platform, established and operated by the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority, aims to give these businesses a boost by highlighting their availability to the general public and help local people know where to go for goods and services at this unprecedented time.
It is the latest initiative to assist businesses and the self-employed in the region, following the creation of the 24/7 Tees Valley Business Support Hotline for companies seeking advice or information as the coronavirus situation continues.
If you have a business currently open to the public that you would like to have included on the site, or if you know somebody who does, visit buylocal.teesvalley-ca.gov.uk to sign up or for more information.
You can also check the site regularly to see a continually updated list of businesses and tradespeople in your area that are currently open or operating.
If you are seeking advice or guidance on Government support for your business at this time, contact the Tees Valley Business Support Helpline, call 01642 662 777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
