Luton Intensive Business Support

Are you a business owner in Luton whose business has been affected by the pandemic? Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Luton who have been affected by Covid-19 will have access to an in-depth business support programme, designed to give you the help and support you need to continue to trade, adapt, diversify and grow.

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAMME CONSIST OF?

SMEs who join the programme will receive three in-depth sessions with a SEMLEP’s Growth Hub business adviser; one at the beginning of the programme, one as a mid point review and one at the end of the programme.

1.

An in-depth assessment of the business’s current health, their challenges and their aspirations, formulating an action plan to be monitored and achieved over the six month programme.

2.

Businesses will receive an invitation to apply for a grant of between £1,000 - £2,400 for use on specialist professional support from the local business community.

3.

Participants will be invited to attend three exclusive workshops covering key business recovery and growth topics.

4.

A mid-point assessment to review the action plan and achievements so far and to identify priority actions for the remaining part of the programme.

5.

A final review will take place, identifying ongoing support opportunities and an action plan for the next 12 months.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) within Luton who have been trading for at least 1 year and have been impacted by the pandemic, and would like to receive in-depth support over a six-month period to aid their recovery and access some specialist expertise.

This programme is being delivered by SEMLEP’s Growth Hub on behalf of Luton Borough Council, and funded by the Government’s Additional Restrictions Grants (ARG) scheme.
