Making Swindon a better place for business
Businesses are the foundation of Swindon's continuing success. At Forward Swindon, we are determined to create a business-friendly environment that retains every company within the town and encourages diversity and growth. We are achieving this by communicating with Swindon's businesses; identifying their needs; eliminating barriers to success; and directing them to new opportunities.
Working for Swindon businesses
- Engaging with Swindon businesses. Our engagement plan focuses on Swindon's Top 100 businesses, and small and medium enterprises. The plan enables us to identify business issues and present practical solutions.
- Liaising on your behalf. From planning difficulties to transport issues, we can help resolve concerns by acting as a go-between with your business and council departments.
- Highlighting sources of support. Forward Swindon can help you navigate the complexities of government funding, directing you to financial support for your business.
- Bringing businesses together. We can identify areas of common interest. For example, companies may require the services of another, or are seeking to develop projects in partnership. We act as introducers, bringing businesses together for everyone's mutual benefit.
