Launch of Business Support Hubs in Chester, Ellesmere Port and Mid-Cheshire

Cheshire West and Chester Council are creating three Business, Innovation and Growth (BIG) Hubs across West Cheshire, to offer support to local businesses.

The Hubs, based in the HQ Building in Chester, Meridian House in Winsford, and Theatre Porto in Ellesmere Port, will provide a base for the delivery of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) Business Support Programme.

Hubs will also host workshops, networking, and support entrepreneurship activity delivered by local and national business support programmes and partners.

There will be an event to celebrate the launch of the mid-Cheshire Hub at Meridian House, Road One, Winsford Industrial Estate at 10am-12pm on Thursday 11 July. The event is an opportunity for businesses to learn more about the support and activity on offer at the Hubs, as well as finding out more about the UKSPF Business Support Programme and network with local businesses over light refreshments.

As part of the Council’s commitment to sustainability and supporting the local economy, the Meridian House Hub has been furnished with furniture purchased from two local charities based on Winsford Industrial Estate, Changing Lives Together and St Luke’s Hospice. Both charities have been invited to the launch.

Councillor Nathan Pardoe, Cabinet Member for Inclusive Growth, Economy and Regeneration said:

“Business, Innovation and Growth Hubs are being set up to provide support for local businesses across west Cheshire. The Council is committed to doing everything we can to help businesses thrive and take opportunities to make new connections and share ideas. We are committed to our vision for an Inclusive Economy to make our Borough a greener, fairer and stronger place to live, work and play. Supporting businesses to grow, create jobs and develop skills is crucial to achieving this.

“I encourage local businesses to attend the launch event in Winsford and keep up to date with everything that our Chester, Ellesmere Port and Winsford Hubs have to offer.”
