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
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
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.
