Queensland Small Business Hardship Appeal

Queensland

We know it's tough for any business to keep trading without the equipment or resources they need. COVID, floods, bushfires and disruptions of various kinds take a toll on so many small business owners. Equipment has become harder to replace due to increased costs, scarcity of supply or longer than usual lead times.

GIVIT is a practical and smart way to help small businesses in hardship to repair or replace equipment or facilities essential to getting restarted. We're calling on big-hearted business and community to support local businesses in need.

The Queensland Small Business Commissioner (QSBC) is working with GIVIT on this appeal.

How you'll be helping

Following recent disaster events, businesses and communities approached QSBC with offers to help other businesses that were in need.

The Queensland Small Business Hardship Appeal directs help to small businesses when they experience hardship as a result of an event outside of their control. The appeal is designed to help small businesses to recover from hardship and get back to business with:

  • Donations of business equipment, or funded vouchers to replace essential equipment.
  • Donations of voluntary time to assist small businesses to clean up a business' premises or do other essential work once flooding has subsided and it's safe to do so.

Small businesses are at the heart of every community and are run by our families, friends and neighbours. They operate across every industry, contributing to the livability and vibrancy of our communities.

They are also an important source of investment and jobs in our local economies. It's vital that we work together to help our small businesses when they experience significant hardship so that they can recover and get back to business.
