Enterprise Hub aims to simplify access to enterprise support, building Liverpool City Region as a central hub for enterprise.  Drawing together expert community organisations from across the region, Enterprise Hub will offer high quality enterprise services and strategic engagement to ensure local residents, no matter what their background and circumstances, can access support to assess their ideas and take them forward.

Citizens Advice Halton are proud Community Partners of Enterprise Hub, offering wrap around services to ensure those accessing enterprise support can receive additional expertise to look at the bigger picture of their business ambition.

Hitesh Patel, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice Halton said, “We are delighted to be part of Enterprise Hub because we see many people who have aspirations to setting up their own business but sometimes struggling because they have personal social-welfare advice needs or because they haven’t been able to get good quality business support”
