Local Business Brains in Talks with Council

Neath Port Talbot's Business Services team recently had the opportunity to speak to businesses from across Swansea Bay about the support that the Council provides to local businesses.

Leader of the Council, Councillor A.H. Thomas

Invited by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the meeting was held at The Castle Hotel in Neath. 

Responding to the concerns of small business is a key part of the work of the Business Services team.

During discussions, advisors responded to enquiries from individuals about setting up a new business, and to business owners on where to access training and funding, as well as website development.

Council Leader Ali Thomas said, "I am committed to ensuring the council is doing all it can to support local entrepreneurs and business owners. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, providing jobs and services for our local communities, they need our help more than ever during these tough times".

Among the local businesses attending were Trellis Confectionery, Resolve Holistic Therapy, BFL Electrical and Energy International Systems Ltd.
