Funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority, the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and the Rural England Prosperity Fund, the Northumberland Small Business Service (NSBS) launched in August 2023.

Delivered by Advance Northumberland, NSBS will deliver a new programme of business support to help small and micro businesses across Northumberland to start and grow.

The Northumberland Small Business service consists of four key strands of programme delivery

  • Growth and resilience support
  • Growth and resilience support (including farming advisory service)
  • Enterprise and start up support

Eligibility criteria will apply, however dedicated Rural Business Advisers will be able to advise on this programme plus other services which may be available.
