City of Wolverhampton Council has announced a new ‘Relight Business Programme’ to support up to 200 micro and small businesses in the city.
It will provide financial management advice and digital guidance and is being run in conjunction with the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and Federation of Small Businesses.
Each business will receive at least £750 worth of professional support in the form of financial health checks, analysis of funding and cashflow, reviews of products and services, and ways to improve market awareness, with the aim to rapidly build their capacity to survive and grow in the Covid-19 hit economy.
Membership of the Federation of Small Business or the Black Country Chamber of Commerce is also included as part of the programme.
- The programme will go live early in the New Year with applications being invited from Monday, November 30, 2020.
Applications must show ambition and passion about the business and programme.
Full details, including eligibility criteria and an online application form will be posted at www.wolvesinbusiness.com.
