Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is encouraging businesses to get involved in a ‘Back in Business’ campaign, aimed at helping local retailers and town centres bounce back from Covid-19.

Funded by the Department for Communities (DfC) and Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAREA) through their Town Centre Recovery Revitalisation Programme, a considerable proportion of an initial £255k allocation will be used to help retail and town centres recover from Covid-19.  Businesses registering as part of the scheme will be able to participate in various initiatives to promote the Borough and encourage people to shop local. To take part, local businesses need to register online. All registered businesses will receive a supply of merchandise as well as the opportunity to get involved in case studies and editorials to give them an extra publicity boost. There will also be a range of Back in Business ‘Roadshows’ across the Borough later in the year which registered businesses can get involved in.
