Business advice and support

We understand that businesses have been faced with challenges like no other, which is why our team of business advisors continue to remain on hand.

The team continue to support start-ups, business expansion and those looking to relocate but they're also on hand to help you during the pandemic.

Offering one-to-one advice and guidance to businesses of any size, they're here to help you navigate government schemes, business support opportunities and any local restrictions.

To access this support or speak to an advisor, contact Business Gateshead today

Independent retail businesses

Are you a small, independent retail business located in one of Gateshead's neighbourhood shopping districts*?

If so, and you feel that you would benefit from one-to-one support with a specialist retail consultant to help you survive the pandemic, get in touch today by emailing business@gateshead.gov.uk quoting 'retail support' in the subject line.

*Gateshead's neighbourhood shopping districts contain clusters of retail businesses serving their local communities. They are located in areas such as Gateshead town centre, Wrekenton, Ryton, Winlaton, Whickham, Felling, Pelaw, Low Fell, Birtley, Blaydon, Dunston and Coatsworth Road.
