Business Support Evenings

Sub Menu

Coming to a Town Near You!

Our Team are hosting a series of Business Support Evenings in the four towns of Ballymoney, Limavady, Ballycastle and Coleraine.  We're particularly keen to engage with any companies that foresee difficulties, as a result of supply chain linkages to Wrightbus, so we can direct them towards the appropriate support for them.  This may include signposting to other agencies, or indeed an application to Alchemy, our business mentoring programme, to work through solutions with an assigned mentor.  Whatever the pain point, we'd be keen to meet you at one of our events
