Small Business Support and Wellness Package

The Queensland Government is continuing to support small businesses’ economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 with the launch of a new Small Business Support and Wellness Package program.

Small businesses will be able to sit down with a locally based adviser and work through their unique and personal business challenges, needs and opportunities – in a free one-on-one, understanding environment.

A wellness coach will help you to alleviate stress so you can take important steps forward, together with other support services. Getting the right help at the right time will protect you, your business and your staff from the impacts of stress and even mental illness.

The new wellness coaches will be available in the coming months. For immediate support, you can access mental health and wellbeing resources for businesses. This includes Beyond Blue’s New Access program especially designed for small business owners. No medical referral is necessary to access this free and confidential service.

The Small Business Financial Counselling Program is also available now to provide assistance to small businesses experiencing hardship with no alternative source of impartial support. The service is delivered through the Rural Financial Service Southern Queensland and North Queensland.

The Queensland Tourism Business Financial Counselling Service provides free financial counselling support to help tourism operators who have been financially impacted as a result of COVID-19.

Mentoring for Growth offers free mentoring and business support from industry experts across Queensland.
