What we're doing to help
We all know the coronavirus pandemic has affected every person, every business and every community in the UK.
Although the country is starting to get back on its feet, a difficult task lies ahead: creating a plan to rebuild the economy.
We want to help. That’s why we’ve launched The Big Conversation: Helping Britain Recover.
Through The Big Conversation: Helping Britain Recover, Lloyds Banking Group will bring together businesses, community members, policy makers and subject-matter experts across the UK’s nations and regions to explore how we can help the UK recover from the impact of coronavirus. Conversations will cover a range of topics, from accessing the finance and skills needed to return to prosperity, to the opportunities brought about by an increasingly digital economy.
As part of The Big Conversation: Helping Britain Recover, we are running a series of virtual events, initially focusing on small and medium-sized businesses, bringing together local and regional voices to explore the best road to recovery for their region. The series, which began in mid-September, will consider the challenges, opportunities and critical areas of support needed to help rebuild businesses and communities and inform recommendations for public policy.
If you’re a business customer of Lloyds Bank or Bank of Scotland and are interested in participating in one of these events, you can register here:
Findings will be shared across the UK’s nations and regions later this year.
Convening expert voices
Through The Big Conversation: Helping Britain Recover we will partner with the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), bringing the voices and experience of its 190,000 members to the conversation.
We have supported the UK for over 325 years, through thick and thin. This is one of the ways we’re helping the country to recover now and prosper in the future.
