At this time when we need to keep apart, we also need more than ever to work together. Supporting each other, caring for each other and helping to make sure that we all get through this most challenging time in the best way we can.

At Lochaber Chamber of Commerce, we’re hard at work supporting Lochaber’s businesses – from guesthouses and self-catering apartment owners to restaurants, activity providers, manufacturing and food production. We’re here for all our members, whatever the industry and whatever the size.

Frazer Coupland, our CEO, is working closely with the wider Scottish Chambers of Commerce network, Government, Visit Scotland, Highland Council and industry partners to help make sure our businesses get the vital support they need to make it through this most difficult of times.

We’re providing daily reliable business support information, up-to-date guidance and assistance, guidance webinars, and access to free tax, legal and HR assistance. We’re in touch with business to answer their questions, find out their needs, share offers of assistance from members and support our members and the wider community in any way we can.

We want all of our local businesses to benefit from the help of our team and the support of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce network to help them through the tough coming months – if your business is not currently a member of the Chamber, you can join now and defer your subscription until August.

There’s never been a more important time for businesses to be part of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce network – you’ll be joining a supportive network of 30 member chambers across Scotland, which speaks up for the needs of over 12,500 businesses throughout our country. We listen to what our businesses tell us, lobby government on behalf of your business needs, and help you access the assistance you need. Businesses of all types and sizes are facing unprecedented challenges but you’re not alone. Let us help you get through it.
