Support for Existing Businesses

The market for our business has changed

How do we re-finance a business?

How do you engage a changing community?

We understand that sometimes businesses have times when they need some extra support. Maybe the original community that supported the business has moved on, maybe you need to get in some new investment in order to change or develop. Whatever it is your business is going through, SWCD is here to help.

How we work with you
Every client is unique and the first thing we need to do is understand you and your situation.
We will then provide some recommendations, and agree the support objectives with you.
We can work with you in informal, exploratory discussions to help you understand the options, or we can create a guided, facilitated programme to take you through all of the steps.
The main objective is to make sure you have the resources and information you need to keep running your business

If this doesn’t seem like what you need, have a look at the other services we offer or get in touch.
