Establishes flexible business workspaces to meet the needs of micro-businesses and mobile workers
The Somerset Work Hubs Scheme supports the establishment of flexible business workspace to meet the needs of micro-businesses and mobile workers.
It forms part of the Heart of the South West Rural Growth Network Pilot, funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and supported by the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership, Somerset County Council and Devon County Council.
The Somerset Work Hubs Scheme has launched a competitive process for potential operators to secure a package of financial and business support. There is £75,000 available to support the establishment of approximately three work hubs in appropriate existing Somerset premises. The Scheme is open to all sectors and all market towns and villages in Somerset with the exception of Taunton, Bridgwater, Yeovil and Frome. This rural focus is in order to comply with the Heart of the South West Rural Growth Network’s established population thresholds.
