Janice Mears, Head of Business Growth, Growth Platform will provide an overview of more than half-a-dozen support programmes from Business Resilience to Peer Networks and everything in between.

Lesley Martin-Wright, CEO, Knowsley Chamber will update us on what grants are still open and Lynsey Barnes will take us through the new set-up at the LCR Finance Hub, and the support available.

Phil Clark, Begbies Traynor, will talk to us about the free Directors Advice Line and finally, Lorna Marshall our Knowsley Working Well Coordinator will provide a short update on wellbeing support.
