One-to-one support

Thinking of starting your own business? There’s a lot to consider and various routes you can take, but the good news is you don’t have to go it alone!

How we can help

Our expert business advisers run frequent business advice clinics, which are ideal if you would like help or advice on anything from your business idea, the initial business planning stages and how to get financial help, to advice on marketing and sales. 

As well as the hour long clinic, you’ll also receive a free 30 minute consultation over the telephone beforehand, to ensure you get the most out of the session on the day.

One-to-one support for new businesses

Our business advisers provide one-to-one support for any new business owner or entrepreneur who would like to discuss their business idea or receive support creating a business plan and completing a financial forecast. 

Attending an advice clinic is a good way of being able to talk confidentially about your business idea and receive professional support and mentoring in return. Our advisers will guide you in terms of what you may need to research or develop to give your business the best chance of success.

Our clinics take place in our offices in Leigh Court, Bristol and Park House, Swindon. 


Book a one-to-one advice clinic with a business adviser for just £75 per hour (incl. VAT).
