NWES has been helping pre-start, start up and existing businesses since 1982.
We offer a range of business support covering Finance, Advice, Training and Premises in the East of England aimed at anyone who would like help and support in starting or growing a business. Many businesses need access to finance to start or expand their business, but often the mainstream options are closed to them. Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFI???s) exist to bridge this gap, they lend to businesses in some of the most deprived and underserved areas. CDFI???s have two purposes to provide the finance required to businesses when the banks cannot assist and encourage social and economic change. NWES Advance is one such institute and has been lending to businesses in the East of England since 2004 with the help of funding from the Phoenix Fund, EEDA, ESF, enterpriseGY and local council funding. Within that time NWES Advance has lent over ??1.5million for numerous business activities to both new and existing businesses.
