Arch provide a high quality support service to businesses of all sizes in Northumberland. We are committed to working with businesses, partners and external support agencies to ensure your business has what it needs to grow.


Business Northumberland is a fully funded business support programme, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and delivered by Arch Business.

The Business Northumberland support programme will form part of Arch’s wider business support, focusing on supporting new and established SME’s with the ability to grow.       Support will be available online via an interactive web portal and diagnostic tool, providing a range of online courses, downloadable resources and interactive material. Online activity will be supplemented by subject specific master classes and seminars as well as 1-2-1 support from sector specialists and Arch employed Business Growth Advisers.

Topics covered by the programme will include:

  • growth through digital technology
  • access to finance
  • product and market diversification
  • business development

The programme will be launching at the beginning of 2017 but we are taking enquiries now. Please register your interest in Business Northumberland below or contact one of the team members directly.
