Peer Networks to support businesses through Covid-19 and into Brexit

West Norfolk small businesses are among those being offered support to help them through Covid-19 and Brexit via a new Government initiative.

Businesses will be able to explore challenges and how best to adapt through Peer Networks, launched by the Government to aid the national recovery effort.

Companies will receive dedicated mentoring support from advisers at New Anglia Growth Hub through the national recovery effort launched by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

From finance and HR to sales and marketing, expert facilitators will help them develop trusted support networks to strengthen their business and fulfil their overall growth targets.

To take part, businesses will have been in operation for a year or more, have a turnover of at least £100,000 a year and employ five or more people.

As these networks will continue at least to end March 2021, it is expected they will be useful in preparing SMEs for the end of the transition period to Brexit.

The scheme will become an extension of Scale Up New Anglia, the Growth Hub’s programme designed to help ambitious business leaders accelerate their business growth through a tailored plan of expert support.

Jason Middleton, programmes manager for New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “We know that businesses which receive additional support and training are more likely to grow and this kind of dedicated mentoring will be worth its weight in gold, especially after the impact of Covid-19.

“Our Growth Hub advisers are experienced in working with high-growth SMEs grow through Scale Up New Anglia and this is an opportunity to engage with even more companies and help them move to the next level.”
