Business Support Programme set to continue to help local businesses

The Worcestershire Growth Hub is pleased to announce that its Professional Business Advisors programme will continue for a fourth wave.

The Professional Business Advisors is a free programme offering 1-2-1 specialist advice, guidance or services to Worcestershire-based businesses.

Businesses can access support in various areas, including workforce planning, IT systems, financial advice, marketing, sustainability and more. The support programme is available for all businesses, regardless of their size and sector.

The success of the Professional Business Advisors scheme has been recognised across the county and so far over 600 businesses have accessed the scheme since its 2020 release during the pandemic crisis.

The support has been proven to be very helpful for many organisations with some leaving feedback such as “great service and advice along the whole journey”, “excellent initiative”, “as a novice it was most helpful to have that free insight”, “very helpful and informative”.

The Worcestershire Growth Hub is excited to build off the success of the scheme and deliver Phase 4 and to help even more Worcestershire businesses.

Luke Willetts, Deputy CEO of the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership and Worcestershire Growth Hub, said: “The Worcestershire Growth Hub is pleased to announce wave four of our Professional Business Advisors programme to support more businesses across the county. We have been able to support a great deal of businesses via this scheme, providing that expert advice from professionals that many businesses are looking for during these challenging times.
