More help and advice

We work with local partnership organisations to assist people to start new businesses, but we don't employ business advisors directly. 

Get Started & Grow is a free service from Staffordshire County Council funded by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council's UK Shared Prosperity Fund, for any small business up to five years old offering support packages delivered by leading industry experts in marketing, accounting and finance, legal and human resources.

The Stoke and Staffordshire Business Helpline can answer a wide range of questions and will signpost you to organisations that can help you protect your ideas or support you to grow. They can also advise on a wide range of funding options and implication of regulations that may affect you.

The Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce offer a wide range of business and enterprise advice.
