Stoke Staffs LEP

Enterprise Support

We are supporting businesses to grow and access support through the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Growth Hub. The Growth Hub supports and enables small and medium-sized businesses to access a wide range of business support and finance.  Whether you’re looking for general advice or seeking a specialist for a technical area of support, the Growth Hub will be able to help you.

What types of support are available?

Some examples of the type of support available:

  • Grant Schemes
  • Succession Planning
  • Loan Funds
  • Exporting
  • Recruiting
  • Mentoring
  • Growth Programmes

At its core, there is a team of accredited business advisors from the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce as well as the LEP’s dedicated Business Helpline. However, the idea behind the Growth Hub is to make sure that a vast range of local and national business support and finance organisations are collaborating to support the interests of Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire businesses.

The great thing about this is if you happen to contact any one of our participating support organisations, they will ensure that you are given the best advice for accessing other schemes which they think you would fit. We call this our no wrong doors approach.
