Through the Government’s ambitious Industrial Strategy, we want to make the UK the best place to start and grow a business, to create jobs and spread prosperity.

The Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership, which covers Woking, received £219 million through the local growth fund to drive regional development. Since 2017, the LEP has invested £12 million to support Woking’s businesses, and recently agreed to invest £3 million to improve transport access to businesses in Woking.

Business support for Woking's small enterprises is available through the LEP's Growth Hub. The Growth Hub provides a free, impartial, ‘single point of contact’ to help businesses in the area identify and access the right support for them at the right time no matter their size or sector. This support includes helping businesses prepare for Brexit.
