Government to launch Small Business Council to support SMEs
The Government has announced the formation of a Small Business Council and an update of the Help to Grow website to help small firms access the resources they need to expand. The new council, which will bring together small and medium enterprise (SME) chiefs across the country, will mean their voices are represented within Government. The updated Help to Grow site will help entrepreneurs find what funding is available and provide webinars and guides on setting up a business for the first time. Business and Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch said, "Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local communities and drive the UK's economy, supporting jobs and wages across the country."
