BBLS loans for Critical businesses


We’re a healthcare staffing agency supplying Key Workers (Nurses and HCAs) into hospitals and care homes and desparatley require the BBLS loan scheme inorder to;

A) improve cashflow and increase our pay rates to encourage staff to work

B) pay staff earlier in a bid to beat our competitors

C) Urgently invest in a website that allows agency workers to register online rather than in person for: Social Distancing and also Increase reach

D) Improve and increase marketing for international Nurse recruitment inorder to bring more critical key workers into the system.

E) Purchase PPE and provide to staff as the government are not providing to externally agencies such as ourselves.

How can we get a chance to apply for the urgently needed BBLS ??? We have recently signed up to Tide and not yet showing trading history as a result.
Thank you
