What’s on Offer?
Eligible businesses can now access a fully funded one to one advice session with a Business Adviser through our Growth Support Service. The service provides you with an opportunity to speak to an expert adviser about your ambitions. The service is aimed at established or new businesses with Growth ambitions.
Following your 1 to 1 session you will be provided with a support plan detailing practical steps to move your plans forward.
Who’s it for?
This programme is open to businesses operating in the following sectors:
Agriculture & Fisheries Farm Diversification Education
Tourism Retail Food Processing
Sectors where other funded business support services are currently available such as manufacturing and export are ineligible for this service.
The business must be based in the Heart of the South West LEP area: Devon, Plymouth, Somerset and Torbay (excluding North Somerset and BANES)
Newly started businesses must already be registered with Companies House or HMRC and have clear plans for how they will grow their business.
A business should be looking to create jobs or increase turnover over the next 12 months (as a guide, businesses that are looking to create a minimum of 1 job or increase turnover by £10,000 over the next 12 months AND sustain existing jobs will take priority).
Not eligible? No problem! There are similar, fully funded support programmes available to businesses and social enterprises operating in other business sectors. Fill out our online enquiry form to be directed to more information –> Click here
