Cost of Living – Support for Businesses

With the cost of living crisis and the war in Ukraine contributing to an uncertain economic outlook, it has led to a number of issues including rising energy costs, inflation and supply-chain disruption among others. This page has been created to provide useful information listed below for our Redcar & Cleveland business community as we look to work through the current challenges.

Building Business Resilience

Being able to strengthen your business’s resilience is crucial to get through these tempestuous times. The Business Engagement team can help you access the support already in place, whether that is accessing new markets, digitising elements of your business or assessing funding options suitable for your business. We also have a range of business masterclasses available in our resource library covering a range of topics, including securing funding, identifying and maximising digital opportunities and more. The British Business Bank have also produced a guide to build business resilience. This contains impartial, practical, and actionable information and support to help smaller businesses manage their costs, boost their long-term profitability, and increase their resilience.

Our team of experienced advisors are happy to have a conversation and meet with you to discuss the needs of your business and the support available. You can contact us on:
