Small and Medium Sized Business Event Drop-in Hosted by Kate Osborne MP

Kate Osborne Jarrow MP has organised a SME business event, inviting small and medium sized businesses from across the Jarrow constituency to attend and pick up support and advice from a range of organisations. 

The event will bring together the Federation of Small Businesses NE, South Tyneside Council, Gateshead Council, Citizens Advice, TEDCO Business Support, PNE Social Boost Programme, BIPC North East, Small Business Charter, North East Ambition and will have resources available from other organisations such as Business Debtline. 

The event will run on Wednesday 20th September from 11am to 2pm and will be hosted at South Shields Football Club.

Ahead of the event Kate Osborne MP said: 

“In my role I have visited hundreds of businesses across the Jarrow constituency and a key theme at each of these was businesses were unsure on where best to access support and advice. 

“I felt it was therefore necessary to host this drop in event and bring together a range of organisations who can offer a variety of support – whilst providing the opportunity to network with other local businesses. 

“It’s extremely important to me as MP to champion and support local businesses in our area. We need skilled local jobs that help invest in our community, from small and medium sized businesses as well as from larger employers. 

“I’ve already received a large number of businesses register to attend this event which shows there is a demand for support amongst SME businesses and I am hopeful that along with the organisations present I will be able to offer more support to our brilliant small business community.”
