Posted on: Monday, January 15, 2024

Following the success of the previous Clinic in 2023, Newark and Sherwood District Council, in partnership with NBV Enterprise Solutions, are offering another Start-Up Support Clinic for local businesses who wish to receive free specialist advice and local support to get their business idea off the ground.

The sessions will be held on a one-to-one basis with Charlotte Jordan, one of NBV Enterprise Solutions’ Business Advisers. Attendees will have the opportunity to receive valuable advice, pose questions directly related to their business, get practical tips and obtain incisive information. 

The clinic is aimed at start-ups under three years of trading or those with a business idea or thinking of starting a business. 

Taking place on Wednesday, 21 February 2024, at Edwinstowe House, there are six sessions throughout the day and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information and to book your session, please contact Will Parkinson by emailing

Councillor Matthew Spoors, Portfolio Holder for Sustainable Economic Development at Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “Our previous Start-Up Support Clinic, in partnership with NBV Solutions, was really well received and therefore we are thrilled to be able to offer this once again. From feedback we gathered after the Clinic 75% of respondents said the Clinic was excellent. In addition those that attended said the sessions were valuable, helpful and they felt supported as businesses.

“The Clinics are an excellent opportunity to receive meaningful advice that is practical for your business, on what steps you can take to get your idea off the ground, grow and flourish. I encourage anyone who feels they could benefit from one of these sessions to book their space, as they are limited.

“Newark and Sherwood District Council are committed to the continued support of our business community and this Clinic is just one of the many events, workshops and Conferences we hold throughout the year to help local businesses succeed.”

The Start-Up Support Clinic has been funded through the District Council’s allocation of UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
