Free Help And Support Available For Small Businesses In Derbyshire

There is new support available for small businesses, including creative organisations, via D2N2 from the D2 Business Advisory Growth Service.

Derbyshire County Council contributed £36,000 towards the project to help small Derbyshire-based businesses to reach their full potential and a further £36,000 has also been contributed from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The free business health check will:

  • look at where your business is now and where you want it to be
  • identify the areas where your business could benefit from additional help and support
  • identify what you need to do to achieve your goals
  • help you apply for grants that are available to businesses across Derbyshire.

The Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration Councillor Tony King said:

“We’re pleased to help fund projects that give small Derbyshire businesses the step-up they need to grow and develop.

“Small businesses play a vital role in boosting Derbyshire’s economy through supplying to other local, national and international companies, bringing in business to the county and employing local people.

“If you’re a small business looking to expand or have just started trading and want to progress to the next stage, don’t miss out on your business health check − it could be a great benefit to you and your company and it’s free.”

The D2 Business Advisory Growth Service is run on behalf of D2N2 − the Local Enterprise Partnership for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

D2N2, established in 2010, is one of the largest LEPs ( Local Enterprise Partnership) in England, covering an area with a population of more than two million people and with an economic output of over £41.2billion (ONS report, February 2015).
