Business Support Programme

Supporting your organisation in all aspects of its business.

Laptop and mobile phone

The Business Support Programme provides access to an approved network of providers that deliver services to meet the needs of third sector organisations in Leeds.

Providers, available through the Business Support Programme, work within a shared set of values and are committed to supporting organisations with their development.

The Programme is overseen by Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL). 

What are your needs?

Are you unsure of what support you need?  Take our interactive Health Check Diagnostic which will help you identify the support you require.  This tool is primarily aimed at workers that offer support to developing organisations but can be used by organisations themselves.

What's available?

The Business Support Programme is aimed specifically at third sector organisations (such as charities and not for profit enterprises), but is suitable for any business in Leeds. It could help you to develop any aspect of your organisation including:

  • Planning
  • Finance
  • Funding
  • Marketing and communications
  • Demonstrating impact
  • People and employment
  • Training
  • Contracting and commissioning

Find a Provider

The providers signed up to the Business Support Programme are available to browse in the new Find a Provider section.

Providers are tagged with their areas of expertise along with details of the services available, how to get in touch and a feedback rating to help you select a suitable provider.

Each provider in the network has signed up to a set of shared values. Essential to this is agreeing not to charge above a set price ceiling, that ensures you will not pay more than you need to.
