National League title sponsors Vanarama, the UK’s leading independent commercial and personal vehicle leasing company, has launched the Covid-19 Small Business Support Team.
This will provide information and guidance for clubs, sole traders, the self-employed and small limited companies on how to access the funding available from the UK Government during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Andy Alderson, CEO and founder of Vanarama, said: “We are immensely proud to be involved in non-league football and watching the Vanarama National League grow year on year has been truly amazing. We don’t want to see any UK club collapse due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"We understand that this is an incredibly stressful time for clubs across the country and finding the right government funding can be overwhelming. As a company we pride ourselves in providing industry leading customer service, so, have further invested in training our customer service team so that they can offer sound advice and guide clubs in these difficult times.”
The free to use service provided by Vanarama can be accessed via Covid-19 Small Business Support Team or by calling 0808 196 3900. Up to date detailed information on all the support that the UK Government is offering as well frequently asked questions from mortgage holidays to life insurance queries can be found here. The Vanarama Facebook group will provide a secure space for members to discuss issues and share their business stories.
Michael Tattersall, CEO of The National League, said: “This is a fantastic scheme from Vanarama, who have further shown their amazing commitment to our league by offering support and advice in The National Clubs time of need.
"We know this will give all of our clubs a boost to know they have an expert helping hand through such a difficult period.”
