Support for Growth

Wiltshire Council

Organisations in Wiltshire work in partnership to deliver a programme of support to local businesses, from advice to start-ups to networking and tendering opportunities.

Local support can be obtained through programmes such as the Wiltshire Business Advisory Service, providing pre-start business clinics for practical advice for those thinking of starting an enterprise, business start-up courses, which will provide information on how to set-up and sustain new businesses, and a programme of topic based and networking events for existing businesses in Wiltshire.

Business Wiltshire is designed to support the development of Wiltshire businesses through access to public sector contracts, including local business and partnership opportunities, the latest local authority contracts and tenders, and local business events.

Salisbury Chambers of Commerce and Wessex Association of Chambers of Commerce offer information and advice on subjects ranging from training courses and lobbying services to local trading and networking.
