Depending on your circumstances, there are many ways to access this support so that it is free or affordable.
Commission us direct
Whether you need research, business planning or a marketing plan, we will build an experienced team for you. We also bring in trusted external specialists, such as design teams, Sports experts or VAT specialists where needed. You’ll have a dedicated lead officer who will meet you and come up with a work plan that you’re happy with, so you know what we’ll do, when we’ll do it and the difference it will make.
Access funded support
We deliver a number of contracts across Scotland. This means that in certain circumstances you can secure consultancy support from us but don’t have to pay as it is funded via contracts with other bodies. These can be thematic or geographical. For example, if you are based in West Lothian, find more information about our local support programme.
We are also a delivery partner for Just Enterprise nationally. Just Enterprise is a government funded programme that assists Enterprising Third Sector Organisations who show the potential to grow and develop sustainably. Give us a ring first to talk it through or find more information on the Just Enterprise website.
Our own Free support
The good news is that there are many sources of free support for community enterprises in Scotland. The first thing we’ll do is talk to you about your ambitions, challenges and support needs. If you qualify for suitable support elsewhere we’ll help you find and access it often alongside support we can offer.
