Supporting you and your business through the COVID-19 crisis

With so much information being circulated from just as many sources, here at BSW Connect, we want to support your business by providing answers, practical advice and action that you can take, along with connecting you to relevant sources of information, to help you get through these challenging times.

On this page you will find up to date information from local, state and national sources, including content from highly regarded South West businesses and professionals who are ready, willing and able to support you from rescue through to recovery.

We have also teamed up with The Bunbury Geographe Economic Alliance (BGEA) and more than 40 community minded stakeholders, organisations and business owners from the public and private sectors to create the South West Alliance Response and Recovery Group, which is focused on providing a united, coordinated, consistent and practical whole South West response to this crisis.
