Here for Business

#HereForBusiness support package to help Greater Manchester navigate the energy crisis.

Greater Manchester’s Business Growth Hub has launched a support package to help local businesses to manage the increasing cost of doing business.

#HereForBusiness brings together support available to Greater Manchester businesses along with practical solutions they can take to deal with energy price rises and other increasing costs. 

The support package includes a series of webinars and workshops to help companies develop a plan to respond to the current economic situation. Aimed at Greater Manchester businesses, these sessions will focus on areas including energy management, financial planning, and people and cost management.

A dedicated website has also been launched which includes useful information and advice on what support is available, blogs and case studies.

Other activity includes:

  • One to one support from advisors, supporting businesses with practical solutions to the immediate challenges businesses are facing, along with longer-term planning, bespoke to their sector.
