Sustainability Business Support

We know that sustainability is important to businesses, and that it can bring real benefits to your business, but that it can be hard to find the time and resources to take that first step. Thanks to support from Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd, the Chamber team is on hand to give you free, bespoke advice and guidance to get you started, and to help you navigate the funding and support that is available.

There is a huge range of support – financial and otherwise – for businesses looking to make their operations more sustainable, but businesses don’t always have time to spend searching through pages of information to find the support that’s exactly right for them. Our team can help you take that first step by having a quick, informal chat to understand more about what you are looking for, then finding the right support mechanism for you and guiding you through the process.

Starting up your own business can be a daunting process, and it’s often hard to know where to turn for advice. Thanks to support from Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd, the Chamber is able to offer free advice and guidance to help you as you start up your business.

Whether you’re taking your very first steps and are not sure how to begin, or you’re an experienced entrepreneur looking for bespoke support to help move your plans forward, the Chamber is here to help!

COVID-19 Support Hub

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and as we start to see an easing of public health restrictions and a return to normality, the Chamber has endeavoured to provide up-to-date advice and guidance to businesses on resources to help them through this difficult time.

Our COVID-19 Support Hub has details of all the latest grant and loan support announced by Scottish Government, as well as links to sector-specific advice and guidance and additional support available through other groups and organisations. The Chamber team is always happy to answer any questions you might have or to provide additional assistance to guide you through the support available.

Brexit Support Hub

The UK has now left the European Union, and new rules and guidance are in place for businesses which want to trade with Europe, but that is not the full extent of the changes to come. As the UK Government works to bring its own rules and regulations into place, everything from employment law to State Aid has the potential to change.

Our Brexit support hub will provide all the latest information on how Brexit might impact businesses in the North Highlands and what support is available to businesses to help them through these changes.
