A new free business advice and support service is now available for small and medium-sized businesses, designed to complement the services provided by Business Wales. The nationwide Welsh for Business project has government backing, and aims to help small independent companies take advantage of the economic benefits of using more of the Welsh language in their business model.
The service is available to all businesses, regardless of their current level of Welsh-language use; many companies will be able to benefit from the advantages of using more Welsh, even if the proprietors themselves don’t speak the language.
The project’s officers can provide a free assessment, tailored advice and practical support, and will be able to suggest free or very low-cost steps that businesses could take, as well as introducing them to new marketing routes and opportunities.
There are four officers covering the south-east Wales area (three as part of the project, and another working closely alongside independently of the project), who will be signposting to Business Wales as appropriate. Each officer has identified priorities and target sectors for their particular area, and would be happy to meet with advisers to let them know more about what they can offer.
