And here’s some good news for belaboured Auckland businesses: the government has pledged further support during this difficult time under the 'Activate Tāmaki Makaurau' and 'Moving Auckland Business Forward' initiatives.

This comes in the form of a sizable package allowing the Activate Tāmaki Makaurau programme to offer up to $3,000 of advice or planning support to eligible businesses and up to a further $4,000 for implementation.

Usually, this kind of support is offered on a 50/50 basis—you pay half, half is funded. As part of the COVID business boost, it is fully funded. This can provide a lot of relief for businesses striving to get ahead in challenging times.

Part of this funding will also see assistance for mental health and wellbeing support. Psychosocial safety is a crucial element for Owners, Manager and Teams and there are practices and strategies Emendas can help with that sit alongside existing practices to help you protect and grow - especially when you are feeling up against it.

You can find more information and register to apply for funding via the Activate Tāmaki Makaurau page.

We believe that in the current climate, with labour shortages as well as COVID-related difficulties, getting the people, process, and safety (including proactive psychosocial health & wellbeing practices) aspects of your business in order is crucial.

If you’re interested in applying for funding and want to chat to us to see how we can help, please email us and we'll set up a time to discuss what services might suit you best.

There is always help available, with ongoing 50/50 support as well as the current funding package.
