Businesses local to Gedling or trading in and around Gedling are to be offered new support following the establishment of the new Gedling Business Support Network.

The new Network will be launched on Friday, 10th May 2024 at the Richard Herrod Centre in Carlton. It is being funded by Gedling Borough Council’s share of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and delivered by East Midlands Chamber. Its aim is to enable local businesses to work together, learn new skills and stay up to date on relevant local, regional and national support.

As well as presentations from the Council and its partners on the fully funded business advice, training and consultancy on offer, the launch event will be highly interactive. Businesses will be invited to participate in practical exercises to share their challenges and to tell the stakeholders present exactly where they need the new Network to help.

Gedling Borough Council Portfolio Holder for Sustainable Growth and Economy Jenny Hollingsworth said: “I really look forward to meeting and hearing from local businesses and hope many, from in and around Gedling, are able to attend. It is of particular relevance to businesses who want to grow Gedling’s reputation as a place to do business and explore opportunities to work with other local businesses.”

East Midlands Chamber Deputy Chief Executive Diane Beresford said: “We’ve put together a series of interactive exercises to really drill down to what’s keeping Gedling businesses awake at night and how the Chamber and Council can address those issues, both through the Network and through support delivered through the Gedling Accelerator project and our routes into national programmes.”
