Hutt Valley support  

Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce, Hutt City Council and Upper Hutt City Council are working together to develop a Hutt Valley COVID-19 business support team.

We will be working with the WellingtonNZ regional business growth team to ensure businesses receive practical advice and support as they tackle the impacts of COVID-19. 

We're also talking to local business groups including Jackson Street Programme, Love Wainuiomata Inc, Seaview Business Association and Technology Valley

We want to know how it is for you so we can feed this back to government and support agencies plus develop resources and support for you. We'll keep updating this page as this happens.
