The WBN in association with the Wheatbelt Development Commission and RDA Wheatbelt are providing Wheatbelt businesses with the opportunity to access valuable business information and assistance relating to COVID-19 through a dedicated Hotline service.

Businesses will be able to talk to one of our WBN professionals on any issues relating to the COVID-19 situation and where we are not able to assist directly, we can refer you to one of our contacts who will be able to assist. You will also have access to our targeted webinars relating to the current business situation.

As an added service, we will be assisting businesses in the Wheatbelt get their WBN Business Directory up to date. We receive numerous calls each week for people looking for businesses in our directory who do not have their phone number displayed. If you are a Wheatbelt business:

  1. Check you are in the WBN Business directory. If you are not, then either sign up for a free listing which gives you your business name, address, phone number and email (if you want a more comprehensive listing you will need to sign up as a member)
  2. If your details are out of date or missing, please email them to r.thomas@wheatbeltbusinessnetwork.com.au and we will update them for you.

Businesses accessing the COVID-19 Support Hotline will have access to a portion of the service offered to WBN members – if you wish to access all of the benefits and services available to members (see table below), we’d love to have you on board as a member.
