Coronavirus Business Recovery Survey

Business planning, recovery and COVID SECURE operations? Have your say.

Take part in our Coronavirus Business Recovery Survey to let us know how you are preparing your business for the next phase of socially distanced and COVID-secure enterprise.

SELEP is undertaking a second business survey, which seeks to go beyond our initial survey, which was focussed on understanding immediate impact. We are seeking to understand the ongoing pressures on businesses and how the new measures and guidance is affecting activities not just in the short term but also for future planning and operations.

We are therefore inviting businesses from across the South East area to complete a short survey. Please take time to complete the survey, which should take no more than five minutes. This is an opportunity to ensure that your views directly inform government thinking and their next steps and any future investments and programmes Government or South East LEP may develop, with partners across the South East to support our business communities.


Now closed: SELEP Coronavirus Business Impact survey

To understand more about how Coronavirus, and the government’s response to the crisis, has impacted businesses in our area, we invited businesses from across the South East area to complete a short survey.

This survey has now closed. Thank you for all of your contributions across the business landscape in the South East. The information we have compiled has been very helpful and has been shared with government.

Below you will find a snapshot of the results we collated, outlining how businesses in the SELEP area (East Sussex, Essex, Kent, Medway, Southend and Thurrock) are dealing with the Coronavirus crisis to date, as well as the worries and concerns they are currently facing.
