UKSPF business support launch events
Join your Local district council, Worcestershire County Council and Worcestershire Growth Hub to learn more about the newly launched business support programmes, part-funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).
The events are a perfect opportunity to learn about the new programmes, meet with programme leads, gain top tips on applying for grants and answer any questions you have.
The new support programmes aim to help businesses start up, scale up, grow, innovate and achieve net zero.
Support covers a range of activities including, one-to-one bespoke guidance, mentorship, coaching, facilitated peer-to-peer support, workshops, decarbonisation reviews and grants for eligible businesses.
