Free support available for Somerset businesses

Businesses based in Somerset with ambitious growth plans for the future may be eligible for free one-to-one support via the new Somerset Business Growth programme.

Run by Business West and fully funded by Somerset County Council, the growth programme offers businesses the chance to receive specialist one-to-one support from expert advisors across a range of topics, from HR processes, training and intellectual property, to creating a decarbonisation plan, financial planning and developing a marketing strategy.

Also included in the support is a diagnostic meeting and the chance to create an action plan specifically for their business. More information on the full range of support can be found here.

Jane Purdy, Head of Enterprise at Business West, who oversees the programme, said: “If you are in Somerset and looking to grow your business but could benefit from some advice from experienced advisers, this programme is for you.

“It is free to join and the tailored support will teach you invaluable business skills to help you keep pace with the latest technologies while developing strategies that will ensure the sustained growth of your business.”

To be eligible for the programme, you must be an existing business based in Somerset, with at least two employees and ambitious growth plans for the future.
