Business Support and Assistance from SDP Partner Councils.
Local Authorities and Member organisations can provide support to SMEs – relevant to procurement issues, business development and growth.
The support available is dependent on which local authority area in which your business is based.
Contact your local SDP representative to find out more by clicking firstly on the menus above or these links to the Councils, Public Bodies or Private Sector lists, then click within the relevant body to access the SDP representative’s name, telephone number and email address.
