​Charlie Dewhirst 

​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.


During these incredibly challenging times I want to use my expertise to help local businesses and self-employed people get the support they need and ensure that they can thrive again when life returns to normal. If you have are struggling to access the Government’s coronavirus support or don’t know what you might be eligible to claim please get in touch. My service is totally free of charge but, if I am able to help, you can buy me a pint when the pubs reopen!

You can contact me by phone or email. There is no need to meet in person so I can help without contravening any current restrictions.


The service is available to anyone based in the East Riding.
