Business growth and resilience programme

Local businesses in the retail, food and beverage sector in Newark and Sherwood district are being offered support and guidance by professional industry experts.

The ‘Business Growth and Resilience Programme’ has been set up and funded by Newark and Sherwood District Council. The second round of this programme will link business service specialists with local businesses in the retail, food and beverage sector.

The programme offers a series of tailored sessions to local businesses within this sector including 1-2-1 mentoring sessions, reviews of business models, training opportunities and more.

Businesses eligible for the programme must be:

  • trading in the retail, food and beverage sector
  • a Newark and Sherwood business
  • operating for two years
  • not sole operators

The programme will provide local businesses with the latest guidance to help them adapt to new opportunities and challenges, develop a new business or marketing plan. As well as enable them to modify their ways of working, assist in identifying new markets or products, establish new supply chains, or provide brokerage for skills and training.

Those who take part in the programme could also be eligible to work with Business Savings Experts to apply for a discretionary grant of up to £4,000 to support new business initiatives to aid business resilience.
