Supporting North West Businesses During the Pandemic

The past year has been anything but easy. But, buoyed by the government’s ‘roadmap’ strategy, many entrepreneurs are now doubling down with renewed optimism and forging ahead.

For North West businesses in particular, there is plenty of regional support available along with a number of large investment strategies to help drive the local economy forwards.

Among them, the LCR Freeport proposal adds another feather to the North West’s infrastructure cap. This, says Warrington South Tory MP Andy Carter, will enable regional businesses to take “full advantage of global Britain” and benefit from industrial revitalisation.

Add to that, a further £100m in government spending has been allocated for the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF), which provides investment to high-growth Northern SMEs.

Closer to home, Warrington Chamber of Commerce offers numerous growth and support initiatives for local businesses, particularly those who need extra support during the pandemic.

At UBC, we work with businesses of all sizes and industries on a daily basis, and it’s clear that the Warrington region has no shortage of innovative entrepreneurs who are continuing to adapt and rise to the current challenges.

We are seeing regular enquiries from businesses for our flexible office space in Birchwood (Warrington), particularly from small business owners and startup entrepreneurs who need flexible office space because they don’t have a suitable or quiet enough space to work at home.

With short terms, affordable all-inclusive pricing, and the ability to change upsize (or downsize) quickly and easily, workplace flexibility is becoming an essential part of every company’s growth plan going forward.

We are happy to have the opportunity to support the current needs and future growth plans of Warrington businesses, and we look forward to helping local business owners move forwards to a stronger ‘new normal’ in 2021, and beyond.
