Business Support

Adding Value to Your Business


From start-ups to established companies, everyone needs advice from time to time. Through our  network and partnerships we have access to experts in all areas of business. So whether you’re a  sole trader, partnership, limited company, social enterprise or community interest organisation, please do contact us if you need advice.

Last year our New Start Programme advised over 150 potential entrepreneurs on starting a business: almost a third of them went on to do so. We also run regular Business Clinics at which our advisors provide one-to-one advice and mentoring. Our regular business workshops and seminars are designed to support you at every stage of your business development.

The Chamber Business Help Desk offers free advice and provides you with information on anything from registering your new company to raising finance or employing staff. The service is available between 10am and 4pm on 020 8541 4441.


Online Business Support

In 2013 we launched a fantastic business support resource, which provides up-to-date, no-nonsense information, videos and online tools designed to make running your business easier and more rewarding.  And it’s absolutely free. We offer specific advice for starting your own business and marketing through our Donut websites.
