Following the recent retention of the ISO 9001 and Customer First award, we are delighted to announce that we are to receive an Advanced Award of the North of Tyne Combined Authority’s Good Work Pledge.

With over 100 businesses supported on NBSL’s first season of its latest programme, Better Business Skills, planning has now started for a second season with places already being booked for September.

Innovation funding for SME’s and Social Enterprises working and based in Northumberland, Newcastle or North Tyneside is available now.

With over 120 applications already received from clients in Durham keen to access the North East Business Support Fund, NBSL are expecting demand to be high for this popular Fund.

Throughout this pandemic our customers have been at the heart of our operations and it’s great to see that we’ve been recognised through our Customer First accreditation again.
