Welcome to the latest edition of our South and Vale Business Support newsletter!

We continue to await detailed guidance on the "Restart" grants scheme announced by the Chancellor in the recent budget.

We will offer an update via the SVBS newsletter once UK Government make further information available.

In the meantime, please find details of all currently active grant schemes here.

As we begin to slowly move towards the COVID-19 recovery phase, we are aware that businesses need our support in getting ready to reopen.

To help, we've partnered with Graham Ballantyne, Director of UK Business Mentoring Group, to host two free online workshops on getting to grips with your business financials and improving your business profits.

Our first workshop, 'From flustered to financially confident - how to make your numbers work for you' is now sold out, but we currently have three spaces left on our 'Seven secrets to improve your business profits' workshop.

Back by popular demand, our 'Seven secrets to improve your Business Profits' workshop will be packed full of useful tips and pointers to expand your thinking and explore what this means for your business.

We have run this session twice before and each time the workshop has sold out, so we recommend registering early to avoid disappointment.

Date and time:

Tuesday 20 April
11:00 - 12:00

Please note that there are three spaces left on this workshop.

The one-hour workshop will follow the format of:

• LEARN - discover the seven key areas

• DISCUSS - share ideas with the host and other attendees

• APPLY - apply these to your business to increase your profit

Bonus for attendees

Following the workshop, attendees will receive a one-hour free mentoring session to discuss implementation of what they have learned into their business.
