News: Yorkshire Forward highlight help for economic challenges


The headlines may be increasingly gloomy but Yorkshire businesses are being advised to make the most of the support that is available to help them through the current economic downturn. The ‘when the going gets tough’ campaign has been launched by Yorkshire Forward this week to raise awareness of the support available through the region’s Business Link service, which was relaunched earlier this year. Yorkshire Forward’s Simon Hill explains: "There is no question that it is a difficult time out there at the moment but there is no benefit in being defeatist or hiding away – life has to go on. This region has a strong economy built on excellent businesses and we will come through this current period of difficulty. "The new Business Link Yorkshire service is built on the principle of providing businesses with first class, impartial advice and support in the key areas that will help them to achieve maximum growth. This is a useful resource at any time, but is even more vital at the moment and so we want to promote it as widely as we can." The support available from Business Link covers access to finance, reducing debt, export, training, energy efficiency and innovation. Businesses can also take advantage of the free 'Health Check' offered by Business Link.
