Business Help Finder - Is your business affected by Covid19?

To support the Chamber, Angie Bell MP Federal Member for Moncrieff has created an easy to navigate tool which provides answers to those important questions to assist your organisation during this time.

COVIDSafe app

An update from Australian Government Department of Health 

We have all been doing a great job - playing our part to help flatten the curve and stop the spread of coronavirus. The new COVIDSafe app will help us take the next step, and keep our friends, family and community safe.

The appointment Queensland’s first small business commissioner

The Southport Chamber fully supports this initiative by the QLD Government. Ensuring that landlord and tenants can reach equitable agreements will be key to the post-COVID recovery, getting all small businesses trading again as quickly as possible. We will continue to track the establishment of the commission and provide updates and assistance where we can.

The Government has announced a $130 billion JobKeeper payment to help keep more Australians in jobs and support businesses affected by the significant economic impact caused by the Coronavirus.


All per our previous email, all levels of the government within Australia have released a number of packages to assist you as businesses in this unprecedented time.

However, it is likely these packages will change over the next few days and months.

Australian Government Announcements and Assistance

With both our State and Federal Governments releasing some support packages to help. Whilst, we have been seeing these released within the media, I thought it is important to share with you an email that I have received in which summarises the support packages and important facts of what is available.
