The North East Business Support Fund, delivered by Northumberland Business Services Ltd (NBSL), provides support to businesses located in County Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear. It provides: 

 - Grant funding of up to £2,800 (35% of total project cost) towards the cost of a coaching, mentoring or consultancy project.
 - A two-day Masterclass e.g. on digital marketing and social media; business growth planning; or developing a marketing strategy.

NBSL has appointed New Skills Consulting to undertake research with businesses to explore your views about continuing the NEBSF project in future, your interest in accessing the support available from the scheme, and also to gather feedback from those businesses that have benefited from the current NEBSF project about the support received (since September 2015).

Your feedback will help to shape the support services delivered by NBSL in future, as well as helping secure further resources to extend the support.

We would be really grateful if you could please spend a few minutes completing this short questionnaire. All your feedback will be treated confidentially. NBSL will not see individual comments.
