Description

Community & Business Partners is celebrating 30 years’ in business with the launch of our NEW mentoring programme. With a track record of delivering successful business support throughout the region, our support has been designed with your business needs at the very forefront of our mind.

The Northern Mentoring Programme will be available for any business, in any sector, in any location in the North West, enabling you to access our extensive pool of experienced and qualified business mentors.

BIS & Sage previously reported that the lack of mentoring is holding back five million small and medium sized businesses from growth; could your business be one of these?
