Free business support for home based businesses
Home based businesses in West Kent are able to benefit from a publicly funded initiative sponsored
by the West Kent Partnership (Tonbridge/Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks Councils) in association
with Kent County Council. For those working from home there are a myriad of issues that have
shown that could benefit from a helping hand. From the simple to the serious; from technical,
computer, communications, to sales and marketing; websites, building the sales pitch, producing
a video for the web, branding, marketing and writing good copy. To back it all up we cover trading
standards, legal and local planning rules and regulations and potential access to finance.
For those that are unsure what to do next or what is the route to expanding activities – and growing
profitability, a conversation with an experienced entrepreneur/mentor is of huge value. For those
seeking tangible resources from design to access to a commercial kitchen – our network is huge.
The scheme specifically provides for delivering one to one advice sessions for practical business tips
and guidance for maintaining your home based business or taking the path to growth. Events will
be introduced as demand dictates but in the first place we set out to supplement those networking
groups already in place.
For more information visit the web site www.homebasedkent.biz where you can see the events
diary and place an enquiry or phone 01233 653974 to ask for a call back from one of the team.
