The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership’s (LEP) ‘New Rules: Ready’ program has proved to be enormously useful to a number of businesses from right across the Solent.

The programme gives small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Solent region the opportunity to receive up to five hours of one-to-one support tailored to their business’ needs from specialist Brexit Transition Advisors.

The Brexit Transition Business Advisers have local knowledge of the Solent region and have sector expertise in sectors including; technology, creative, digital, AI & data, manufacturing & advanced engineering, life sciences & health, renewable energy and marine & defence.

As part of this support, the Brexit Transition Business Advisers:

  • Help businesses identify the actions they need to take for their business in response to Brexit.
  • Work with businesses to develop a detailed, flexible and bespoke action plan.
  • Help businesses feel confident that they have done everything possible to succeed with the new rules in place.

Brian Johnson, Chair of the Solent LEP said:

“We know the changes surrounding Brexit have called for adjustments and we have been making it as easy as possible for Solent businesses to navigate through them. I’m delighted that some have already taken up this opportunity and hope that other businesses who are needing support in navigating the new rules will do the same. Our specialist Brexit Transition Advisors are on hand to guide them through any challenges they are facing as a result of Brexit.”

Businesses that take up this opportunity will have the same Brexit Transition Business Adviser supporting them throughout the process and they will even check in with them to measure progress and to see if they need further help.

Do these people really believe that “advice” will undo the Brexit disaster?
I bet there isn’t one of them who’s ever had to run a small business.

Will or have any Island companies been told about this or benefitted from this in any way. It would be nice to know….
