Scottish Government Carillion Helplines

22 January 2018

The Scottish Government has set up two helplines in relation to the collapse of Carillion:

  • Businesses affected by the Carillion insolvency can call Scottish Enterprise (SE) on 0300 013 3385 or register their details here

  • Employees under threat of redundancy can call the helpline operated by Skills Development Scotland is 0800 917 8000, with help also available here.

The purpose of the SE helpline is to better understand the potential impact on Scottish supply chain companies in terms of anticipated lost turnover/jobs as a result of Carillion entering liquidation.  

Enquiries will be received by Scottish Enterprise's EFRS team, and whilst it is impossible to predict the volume and nature of enquiries it is highly likely that they will come from businesses who will be relevant for Business Gateway (BG) support.

Relevant enquiries received through the helpline will be passed to local BG enquiry queues in CRM, and Carillion will be highlighted as the Enquiry Reason Classification 1.  We are being asked to respond to these and provide any support we can.

The Skills Development Scotland helpline will provide PACE support and BG will have a role to play in supporting anybody who wishes to start a business.
