New businesses are very vulnerable when they first start out, and they need nurturing and attention as they take root and grow. Tree Shepherd offers free support and guidance to local businesses through its regular face-to-face business clinics. These are confidential one hour sessions where our business advisors share their experience and work with the entrepreneurs to plan ahead and overcome obstacles to business growth.
Typical areas of support include:
- Understanding your market
- How to communicate to customers and potential customers
- Financial implications of a new business
- Registration and legal issues
Our business clinics are free to access for people on benefits, or on household income below £24,700.
