Have your say on the future of business support from Wyre Council

13th of April, 2022

Wyre Council would like to hear from businesses in the borough on their priority business support needs.

In 2008, Wyre Council created the Wyred Up networking group to help enable businesses to connect across the borough and to encourage local businesses to trade with each other.

Now, as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the council is relaunching this service to create a network to help local businesses access government grants, identify training & networking opportunities at preferential rates, and take advantage of business support services.
Councillor Alice Collinson, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Economic Development, commented, “It is our vision to create a new group that businesses can join, free of charge, to get support and advice from the council and selected partners.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has been incredibly difficult for many business owners and, as we start to recover, we’d like to know what support businesses would like to receive.
“I would urge existing and new business managers, owners and entrepreneurs to take part in our short questionnaire to help us understand local business support needs and priorities.”
The consultation is open from 11 April 2022 until 16 May 2022. To take part, visit www.wyre.gov.uk/wyredup
