Update from Coast to Capital LEP

I am pleased to share the latest update on the support that Coast to Capital and the Growth Hub Team are providing to businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the UK transition from the EU.

  • New and improved Growth Hub portal – The updated website design is now even easier for businesses to access a number support services for the sector and location that businesses may operate in.
  • Special ‘Brexit Transition’ newsletter – Please find attached a copy of the newsletter content which covers some of the actions businesses need to take and where to find support. Do feel free to share this information with your colleagues, network, and/or members.
  • Business Support over the Festive Break – We will be sharing details of how we will be supporting businesses with urgent Brexit Transition support over the festive break within the next few days. Please follow us on Twitter @C2CGrowthHub for regular updates.
  • A Year in Review – A message from our Chief Executive – In response to the monumental challenge faced by businesses across the area, we doubled the size of our support team in the spring who have since triaged over 2,500 support enquiries. This was supported by a combined £4 million distributed via our ‘Backing Business Grants’ and ‘Business Recovery Grants’.

We would welcome any feedback you may have in regards to these regular updates to our key partners, such as frequency and content. Please email Helen Weedon in the first instance.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch. But for now I would like to wish you a safe festive break and happy New Year from the Coast to Capital and Growth Hub team.
