Newcastle’s Localised Business Support is led by Newcastle City Council. It provide’s delivery pre-start, startup and business growth support to local residents and businesses.

The activity will take place within local settings, delivered by organisations with a track record in engaging with individuals and businesses that face barriers.

The activity can be broadly split between hyper-local activity, delivered by delivery partners The Millin Charity and Reviving the Heart of the West End; and Newcastle City Council activity delivered by the Business & IP Centre from their main centre in Newcastle and across our regional network of BIPC Locals.

The project aims to support the creation and growth of micro, small and medium sized enterprises, social enterprises and not-for profit organisations predominantly within Newcastle; alongside a smaller package of support across the wider north east.

Activity also aims to target beneficiaries who face significant barriers to entrepreneurship; and where hyper local provision (i.e. pre-start, start up and business support delivered in community settings, by organisations who have a track record in building long-term trusted relationships with their beneficiaries) will allow us to achieve outputs that are unlikely to be delivered through mainstream business support activity.
