How it works
After you’ve applied, we will match you with a digital advisor who will carry out a digital audit of your business. They’ll discuss your digital plans and talk about any tools that could help you.
They’ll produce a report and a personalised digital action plan which will identify next steps and priorities for your business.
They’ll arrange a follow up meeting with you to go through the action plan and support you to take the next steps. Meetings might need to take place virtually.
The support will be clear, focused and efficient.
