Support for business

The Swale Means Business website, is aimed to help those looking to start, expand or relocate their business to the borough. There is also information on the website for those interested in investing in Swale.

In addition, if you need a base from which to carry out your business, the borough has a range of commercial land and property available, from retail to industrial and office space. If you need new space, see our property register.

Whether you are looking for funding to get your business idea off the ground or if you need to expand your workforce, our funding page may be able to help.

And if you want your business to be kept in the loop about what’s going on in the area, sign up for our Business E-Bulletin today.

Whether you are a new or existing business, or if you haven’t yet taken the plunge but are thinking of going into business for yourself, the programme has the flexibility and the knowledge base to assist.

The Business Support programme comprises four parts:

If you are interested in taking part in this FREE programme, please contact the KICC on 01795 379012.
