Growth Hubs – Our Second Great Website Recommendation for Funding

Growth hubs are local public/private sector partnerships led by the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). They join up national and local business support so it is easy for businesses to find the help they need. There is a network of 38 hubs. You can find the growth hub nearest to you by hovering over the map, and click on the map or click on the relevant LEP area in the list on the right to take you to the relevant growth hub website. Both the www.gov.uk website and the Business Support Helpline also offer advice about starting up a business and can direct business to more support. Businesses can call 0300 456 3565 to speak to a business support advisor (9.00am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday).
