North East businesses are being encouraged to take advantage of funding as deadline is extended.

Supply Chain North East is urging businesses throughout the local authority areas of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, and County Durham to take advantage of business support funding that has been extended until June 2023.

The Supply Chain North East programme, delivered by RTC North, North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC), North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) and Generator, has received the funding extension from the England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), allowing North East SMEs to access 12 hours of business support through the programme until next June.

Programme manager for Supply Chain North East at RTC North, Alan Whittaker said: “There are huge opportunities coming to the region, especially as we work towards the levelling up agenda. I encourage all businesses to reach out to Supply Chain where we can help ensure their companies are not only aware of the current and future opportunities but are able to take full advantage.”

Dawn Musgrave, project manager for Supply Chain North East at NEPIC said: “As a partner of Supply Chain North East, NEPIC are thrilled the funding has been extended to allow small businesses to take advantage of the programme. It’s a great opportunity that will allow more SMEs to tap into the process, chemical and pharmaceutical industry in the North East, which would not be possible without this support programme.”

“Our advisors will work directly with companies who have signed up to create a tailored business development plan that fits with their individual needs and business goals, ultimately helping them to unlock opportunities in this exciting new market.”
