Call Centre Update News  

Business Link to be axed from 2012

Posted on Nov 04 2010
Call Centre Update News >>

The Department of Business Innovation & Skills white paper on local growth identified the £154m annual cost of running the Business Link network was "high" and that the generalist nature of support, advice and consultancy provided to small firms had been poorly targeted, for example at "so-called 'lifestyle businesses' that were unlikely to grow.
The Business Link initiative is carried out under the auspices of nine Regional Development Agencies, which will scrapped and replaced by Local Enterprise Partnerships, which enterprise minister Mark Prisk confirmed in June would face the chop. In line with the new government's strategy to shift  power to local communities and businesses, the LEPs will be joint projects between local authorities and business groups. So far, 24 LEPs have been approved and the intitiative will be backed with a £1.4bn Regional Growth Fund.
From April 2012, the website and a national call centre will be the primary sources of advice and support for small businesses.
