Business Support Week – Recover, Restart & Grow!

Eastern Somerset Business Support Week 15th – 19th March!

The Eastern Somerset Councils of Mendip and South Somerset are working collaboratively to launch a week full of business support activity to help your business grow through the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are delighted that the Recover, Restart and Grow programme is now live, and will kick off on Monday 15th March! Aimed at our local businesses the week is open to everyone who is seeking to get insights, intelligence and a mix of support, ideas and connections to help grow their business.

During the week, there will be a variety of business support sessions with expert guest speakers from organisations such as Skill Up, Federation of Small Businesses, Department for International Trade, Enterprise Nation, Tech Nation, University of Exeter and Visit Somerset as well as facilitated sessions from Officers within the Councils’ Economic Development Teams.

Although the majority of webinars are open to all sectors, we have organised for a series of workshops to take place to support the retail sector within the two districts. The Councils are inviting all retail businesses to be involved in a focus group to develop an action plan that supports our town centre spaces, businesses and communities. The plan will go further than recovery and outline a route map for an ambitious future.
