As we progress into February, the team at Worcestershire Business Central have been working hard to deliver support to organisations during this vital time.
I am very pleased to say that our Peer Networks programme has gotten underway with all of the cohorts now actively meeting every few weeks. Members of the cohorts are tackling business challenges with guidance from the facilitators, and importantly, advice and support from their peers.
I am thoroughly looking forward to being able to share the fantastic feedback we are receiving from the cohorts on the programme in the coming weeks. If you’d like to read more about the Peer Networks programme and how to register interest for future cohorts that we may run, read our newsletter article here. – https://www.business-central.co.uk/peer-networks-progress-report/
The second of our support programmes we have been delivering is the Specialist Business Advisers. With all 5 of the advisers appointed and 1:1 and virtual events starting to take place, I would encourage any organisations reading this newsletter to enquiry about the programme, as there is FREE business advice on offer which could help your company to build back better.
If you’d like to learn more the Specialist Business Advisers and how you can access the free support, read our newsletter article here. – https://business-central.co.uk/we-are-inviting-you-to-take-part-in-the-business-advisers-programme/
Finally, I’d like to just remind readers that there is still COVID support grants available from the Worcestershire district councils. We’ve collated a helpful webpage which has the links to the various district council websites. You can find this webpage here – https://www.business-central.co.uk/local-district-grants-still-available-to-businesses/
If you are interested in trying to access these funds, please use the website links we have provided to contact your local district council as they will be able to help you directly.
