Small businesses desperately need to be supported in our area. The list of reasons for this support is as long as the list of benefits. From retail to construction and beauty to food all our small businesses would benefit from support. Offering grants to startups and training, subsidies or better rental rates in town centre units and incentives to create local jobs are just a few ways we can help small businesses trade and boost our local economy. Training would also be beneficial; not only training applicable to individual trades but training on the things involved in running businesses i.e accounts, commercial renting, banking and lending, being an employer, marketing and networking. Lacking knowledge of these things prevents many skilled people starting or being successful in their own businesses. Not only does this kind of funding need to be put in place the information needs to be readily available to all and actively offered.
