Specialist Retail Support: Free Webinars

In February 2022, South Holland District Council began a project in partnership with Maybe Tech and specialist retail advisor, Claire Bailey; aiming to support high street businesses and retailers in the District.

The Council offered high street businesses and retailers the opportunity to access free skills training, one-to-one expert support and other resources until 31 March 2022.

The offer to retailers was funded by Welcome Back Funding through the European Regional Development Fund.

Whilst this project has now concluded, local businesses can still enjoy free webinars providing the latest tips and advice on recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are a total of 9 pre-recorded webinars and corresponding PDF booklets which can be accessed through the table below.
