Useful Resources

As UK businesses begin to reopen and lock down restrictions are eased, CWLEP Growth Hub have put together some useful recovery resources for businesses.

This page provides information about reopening premises, accessing guidance for safe working practises and inspiring case study stories from businesses who have diversified and adapted to the economic challenges wrought by Covid-19.

FinditinCW is a new B2B website that helps local businesses access high and lower value contract and tender opportunities, both for the private and public sector. The purpose of the service is to ensure local SMEs can find and compete for relevant opportunities in the area and help businesses find local suppliers for their own contract opportunities. FinditinCW offers users the opportunity to attend Meet the Buyer events for major infrastructure projects, procurement workshops and business support events, plus much more.
