We’re having a special focus on the way we support social businesses to realise their potential, starting with the services we provide in Neath-Port Talbot and Swansea. Carl Gough is the Social Business Wales Adviser for that area.

Carl works with social businesses that need various levels of support, from a helping hand, to those who are looking to grow through creating jobs and expanding their company in some way.

Carl provides advice and support to local social businesses, while being able to draw upon assistance from other specialists. The support covers a wide range of needs, including HR, tax, marketing, business plans, governance and much more.

In the coming months, we’ll also be profiling the work of Carl’s colleagues in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.

The support is provided through Social Business Wales, which is delivered by the Wales Co-operative Centre, and funded by Welsh Government and the European Development Fund.
