On your marks, get set, Restart!


The City of Cockburn is continuing efforts to support local business during COVID-19 by launching a Restart Hub to reboot the beating heart of Cockburn’s business community.

Apart from providing guidance and advice about safe ways to reopen as COVID-19 restrictions ease, the Hub also enables businesses to register on an Open for Business digital map, so residents can see they have begun trading.

City of Cockburn Business Engagement Officer Sarah Kahle said the City had been working hard to assist businesses through this unprecedented challenge by offering advisory services and supporting the adaptation of local operations.

“Many small businesses have really met the challenge by rapidly changing the way they operate and launching new products and services over the last few weeks; from drive thru services and delivery boxes, to online yoga and fitness classes, and take home meals from caterers and restaurants,” Ms Kahle said.

One local business who took advantage of a Business Foundations course provided by the City during the pandemic isolation period was local providore and café Coogee Continental.

Owner Anthony Iemma said he was very thankful for the opportunity in a time of uncertainty.

“I found it very informative and helpful and would recommend the service to every business owner in the council that is affected by the pandemic,” Anthony said.

The online Hub also enables businesses to find out about safety guidelines, register for social distancing stickers and posters to help with customer management, learn about available grants and financial assistance, register as a prospective supplier to the City and stay in the loop about what is happening in the local business community.
