For businesses in Crystal Palace
We have refreshed our Covid-19 support hub to provide updated links to local authority services.
Information changes quickly and not all councils use the same approach when they respond and offer support to businesses.
We deal with up to five councils in Crystal Palace area, so we appreciate how complicated it can be. We hope this page helps you find the links and support information you need quickly.

About our Covid hub for Crystal Palace businesses
In 2020, in response to the pandemic, we made our website front page available as a temporary emergency information hub for businesses and local services dealing with the impact of Coronavirus / Covid-19 (20 March 2020 - 14 June 2020).
After the end of the first lockdown in 2020, we created a permanent Covid19 Hub for businesses in Crystal Palace to provide quick and easy access to information and resources currently available from local authorities.
