With lockdowns continuing in many of Australia’s major cities, large parts of the country remain closed and venues in those areas need support.

While many have chosen to close for the duration of the lockdown, others have decided to stay open for pick-up and delivery services. The best way to support your local or favourite venue is check their social media or webpages and see if they are offering any services during lockdown. In addition many venues offer gift vouchers, which are a great way to help with some cashflow right now.

Also don’t miss our information on how hospo workers can access the COVID Disaster Payment Fund, which is now available immediately for workers and businesses in Victoria.

Here’s a selection of what some venues are doing and how you can help. Please email info@theshout.com.au to be added to this list.
