Funding & Support

Set up to be successful

Rossendale is committed to making your business the best it can be, whether you are thinking of moving to the borough or are already based here, our extensive range of support will add value to any business.

When it comes to relocating, expanding or setting up a new business, it can seem difficult. It’s not always obvious who you should speak to and what information is useful, so we have a dedicated group of officers that do their best to understand your business needs that can point you in the right directions.

Supporting and investing in staff has never been more important and none more so than in the visitor economy sector - does your business qualify for FREE leadership and management training with Myerscough College? >> https://www.marketinglancashire.com/news/spotlight/myerscough-college-leading-lancashire/

As a team we have enjoyed working recently with webuybooks. Great to see a local business expanding and creating jobs. https://www.lancs.live/news/lancashire-news/key-rossendale-employer-unveils-relocation-19846493

Another great bunch of businesses attended our recent @InvestInRoss Business Guidance Seminar. We learnt what current funding and support is available as well as lots of info on SMART testing by the @RossendaleBC Environmental Health Team. Thanks all
