The Volunteer Business Support Scheme

Hertfordshire businesses struggling to cope because of the pandemic can now access further free support. The Volunteer Business Support Scheme will help micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to bounce back and support them through the pandemic and beyond. The scheme will match businesses with a volunteer mentor that has a breadth of knowledge and experience within business and industry, acting as a critical friend or resource to help them navigate through the challenges the pandemic has posed for their business. In addition, the mentors can help businesses navigate the resources’ and schemes available locally and nationally. Over 40 mentors have joined the scheme so far, which will run throughout 2020.

You can register for support at Herts Growth Hub.
