The Economic Development team works with local, regional, and national partners to access support for businesses, and to develop enterprise training, workshops and events.
Whether working with our local Chambers of Commerce, the Federation of Small Businesses and the Heart of the South West Growth Hub, or the Department of International Trade's advisers to access support for new exporters, we're here to support start-ups, growth enterprises and local investment.
Business programmes, partners, advice and support for start-ups and SMEs to growth enterprises and exporters. These are just some of the programmes and partners who can offer a range of support to your local business across the Mendip District of Somerset.
With so many skills and employment initiatives, it can be tough for employers to navigate the wide variety of T-Levels, apprenticeships, degree apprenticeships and evolving work scheme opportunities available.
Social enterprises trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people's life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community.
