Spelthorne Business Survey – Deadline Extended!

This is your chance to tell us what support you need!

TAKE ME TO THE SURVEY

Over the past two years, the Council’s Economic Development team has focused on supporting businesses through the Coronavirus pandemic and helping them recover in the background of a cost-of-living crisis.

There has been a wide range of schemes the Council has offered to Spelthorne businesses, including:

  • equipment purchase grant – providing up to 90% of the cost of new equipment, helping businesses become more resilient
  • shopfront grant –-covering up to 90% of the costs if any retail business could demonstrate they needed an upgrade
  • ARG5 grant – for those businesses who had not received grant funding
  • Omicron grant – supporting the hospitality and leisure industry

Cllr Sinead Mooney, Chair of the Economic Development committee, said: “This Council takes a holistic approach when it comes to the support we provide, and we know the support has made a positive impact for many businesses in the Borough. The responses we receive from this survey will help us tailor our services to suit their needs in the future.”

Spelthorne also offered several support initiatives, including business skills workshops, 121 business coaching, Federation of Small Businesses memberships, digital media training and free website provision.

The Council’s work supporting businesses led to it being named the All-England winner of the Future Ready category and the regional winner in the All-Round Small Business Friendly category.
