About support & funding

Working with other key organisations operating across the Cheshire West area, we offer a range of free, independent advice and guidance on starting up a business, providing support to existing businesses and those looking to relocate to the area.

As we know from our work with local business people there is more to running and developing a business than just having a good product or service. You need a flexible business plan, good marketing, effective financial controls and a clear vision of how you want to develop your business.
