Regional Recovery – Small Business Support

Rural and regional small businesses across Australia financially affected by COVID-19 can access free financial counsel and support to recover from restrictions and build future resilience.

Small Business Financial Counsellors have been funded by the Australian Government to make it easier for eligible businesses to

– access immediate support
– navigate recovery
– receive personalised assistance to develop long-term plans and improve viability

“RFCS providers have been assisting rural small businesses for over 30 years.  Our significant strength is planning and negotiating with finance providers, which will be a critical role during COVID-19 recovery.”
Geoff Fader, Chair – RFCS Network

“Small Businesses may take years to recover and adapt to a new operating environment. If regional businesses don’t survive, the economic impact throughout these communities is incomprehensible. Small businesses must be given every chance to rebound and thrive.”
Peter Strong, CEO – Council of Small Business of Australia, (COSBOA)

If your business is facing hardship due to COVID-19, arrange a time with RFCS Gippsland 1300 045 747 or email
