Help for Businesses
We have launched a series of vital new programmes to help businesses and entrepreneurs weather the worst effects of the recession.
Like all cities in the UK, there is little doubt that the impact of the global recession is being keenly felt in Birmingham by businesses and individuals from all walks of life.
What sets us apart from other cities is that we are pursuing a wide range of innovative projects which are designed to help those most affected to cope and to put the city and its citizens in the best possible position to benefit from a recovery.
While the economy is now recovering from the recession, many businesses and residents in the city may feel its effects for some time to come.
And thats why we've put together these handy guides to getting help during the recession.
Whether you’re a business looking for advice on how best to manage your debts or you’re an individual looking for new employment, support is available.
Whilst the information contained on these pages does not constitute financial advice all tips should be followed up by your own research and taken at your own risk. The important thing is to take positive action and aim to make the most of the help that is available.
