Business Resilience

Regardless of what happens it’s essential that all businesses in the North East make the necessary preparations to become resilient to any outcome.

A recent survey found that 51% of businesses are not resilient due to a lack of preparation

We’ve brought together business support and access to finance schemes, together with the latest advice and guidance from government to help you do this.
