The Solent LEP has launched a new Brexit support service to to help small and medium enterprises (SME's) who are based in the Solent region.

Those seeking support will be matched with a specialist Brexit Transition Business Advisor and will receive up to five hours of one-to-one support tailored to their business needs. Advisors will help businesses to identify critical issues resulting from Brexit and develop a detailed and flexible action plan to respond. Specialist Advisors will also work with Solent businesses to review progress in implementing their plans, identify any further support needed and enable access to wider support available for the Solent area.

The new service is launched in recognition of the transition period ending on 31 December and support will be available throughout the working days of the Christmas and New Year period. Click here to find out more.
