Growth Support Programme

The Growth Support Programme For Existing Businesses with a Unique Tax Reference (UTR)

This programme is available to support existing businesses wishing to grow, expand or who just wish to have an outside view of their current business. The support provides an initial face-to-face meeting with an experienced business advisor to get to know you and your business. During this meeting the advisor will work with you to create a development plan and to identify any areas where additional support could be of help. 

If after the initial diagnostic it is determined that further support is required you will be offered the opportunity to commit to a further 9 hour support package delivered by business specialists.  You can chose from a range of modules including Business Planning, Business Finance, Innovation, Marketing, HR and an assessment of Digital Opportunities depending on your needs.

Your Business Advisor will also signpost to other assistance and programmes for business support.

This support is available throughout Taunton Deane, Mendip, South Somerset, West Somerset and Sedgemoor.
