In order to help people stay afloat during these incredibly difficult times, I am offering a free of charge advice service to any small business or self-employed person in the East Riding affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). I can help you navigate the support put in place by the Government to ensure you get access to the funds that are available. Whether it is pointing you in the right direction, assisting with applications or advising on more complex cases, I will do what I can to assist you.

If you are based in the East Riding and need advice please contact me today.

What can I claim?



This is a basic guide to the financial support available to businesses and self-employed people as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Hopefully it will answer many of your questions but please get in touch if you would like any additional assistance. 

This will be updated as the Government announces new support mechanisms and publishes further detail about existing schemes. 




My name is Charlie Dewhirst and I am a communications and government relations specialist from Wansford, near Driffield. Over the past fifteen years I have worked in Parliament, advised multi-national companies and worked for some of the largest sports and sporting events in the UK.


I also served eight years as a local councillor, helping residents and businesses with varied and complex casework.
