Free advice and support for businesses
Advice ranging from business planning and finance to employment issues and training will be available at a free Business Support Fair in Witney on Thursday 26th November.
The event is being run at Langdale Hall, Witney, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm, by West Oxfordshire District Council to showcase the support that is available for local businesses.
Advice will be available for anyone running or considering starting a business in West Oxfordshire, with more than 30 organisations on hand to give information about the help and support on offer.
Cllr Warwick Robinson, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “This is part of our work to support local businesses and the local economy and is a good opportunity for people to find out about and take advantage of the wealth of support and guidance that is available. It is also a great opportunity to meet other local businesses and share experiences.”
Some of the issues that will be covered at the Fair include:
* Funding sources available to businesses and entrepreneurs
* Business mentoring
* Training, business rates and tax issues
The Council has been looking at ways to support businesses in reducing energy use to help them save on costs and reduce their impact on the environment. This issue will also be covered at the fair, with advice available from specialists.
