New services added to improve support for Cumbria businesses


LAST week saw the launch of two new services, both enhancing the support offered to Cumbria businesses through the Cumbria Business Growth Hub.

Cumbria Business Growth Hub now offers access to funding and a workforce development service. Through the Access to Finance service, the hub offers flexible support, referral to products and vendors that will unlock business growth. The Workforce Development Service provides support to review skills and more effectively access relevant training.

Lesley Robinson, Business Support Manager for the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce, said: “I am really delighted to welcome Maria Ramsdale from Maria Ramsdale Finance Ltd and Ray McCreadie from LEAN TeamGB to the team. Both bring many years of experience and knowledge to the table and look forward to working with Cumbria’s SMEs.
