Free advice to businesses extended

A free business advice service has been extended after helping 60 businesses and creating 23 jobs since its launch four months ago.

Derbyshire Dales Business Advice was initially funded by the District Council for six months, but now the contract for professional adviser Heather Bradford has been extended until the end of March next year.

Cllr Lewis Rose said: “Businesses really appreciate the free support we are providing and they welcome the opportunity to talk through their ideas, problems and plans face-to-face.”

Businesses must be based in the Derbyshire Dales to benefit from the advice service and priority will be given to those with growth potential.
