This follows Mayor Sadiq Khan’s unveiling of a range of new, free-to-access support options for London’s million-plus small businesses as they prepare for Brexit, which he launched at City Hall today, Monday 7 October.

Although the nine new London Growth Hub centres offering face-to-face advice and resources are not in the borough, Hounslow Council is recommending its local businesses to avail of the free-to-access services at nearby Hammersmith & Fulham (The Huddle), Haringay (639 Community Enterprise Hub and Wood Green Library) and Harrow (the Civic Centre).

Here at these locations, the new London Growth Hub service will start to operate across London and will help small business leaders take the basic steps they need to prepare for the impact of Brexit on areas such as import and export arrangements, EU staff, and potential changes to contracts and insurance. This will be fully operational from 1 November.

Launched in 2017 and delivered by LEAP, London’s local enterprise partnership, the Hub brings together the capital’s vast business support offer into a single online resource – and is now being expanded to offer in-person support as well.

According to a recent survey by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), only nine per cent of London business leaders polled, say their business is prepared for a no-deal Brexit and nearly a fifth say they require support in planning for one.
