Are you a business local to Gedling or trading in and around Gedling? If so, you're welcome to come along to the Gedling Business Support Network.

If you attended the network’s launch in May, you will know that its purpose is to help Gedling businesses flourish by accessing relevant support services from the Council, East Midlands Chamber, D2N2 Growth Hub and other partners, as well as through collaboration with their peers.

Together with showcasing such support, our meeting in July will have a particular focus on accessing finance including any local grant schemes. We will also be exploring how to submit a successful grant application with David Smith, Business Adviser at East Midlands Chamber. David has worked in the business support arena for over 20 years, during which time he has managed multiple publicly funded grant programmes and has helped 300+ businesses access over £10m in grant funding.
