Help for your business

Businesses are what drive the economy forwards, and the North Essex Economic Board (NEEB) recognises it has been a difficult time for companies through the pandemic – and now with rising inflation and added business costs. That is why NEEB has fully funded a number of support programmes to help businesses survive and thrive.
