Create a trusted support network

National programme funded by Central Government

About Peer Networks

Peer Networks is a national peer-to-peer networking programme for SME leaders that want to grow and develop their organisation for future success.

This programme is curated to allow businesses and business owners to share and gain knowledge and help from expert facilitators.

Delivered locally by Worcestershire Business Central, we will create diverse cohort groups of individuals to collaboratively work through common business issues. Through interactive action learning, we will enable you to discuss your own challenges, gain and reflect on valuable feedback and implement practical solutions to overcome them.

From finance and HR to sales, marketing and more, our expert facilitators will give you the flexibility to create a trusted support network that works for you, helping you to build and strengthen your business and improve its overall performance.

The support is FREE 18hrs of facilitated learning and FREE 3.5hrs one to one time with the facilitator and that the activity will need to be completed by the end of March 2021


Businesses that seek external advice or undertake formal training are more likely to improve their overall performance, but many prefer to take advice from trusted sources, such as their peers, when presented with external challenges and opportunities.

Peer Networks enables you to  make connections that go far beyond networking.

By completing Peer Networks, you will:


Overcome business challenges and recognise and act on new opportunities


Build a trusted network of connections to support you now and in the future


Improve your long-term personal and business performance
