George recently met with Business Debtline, a charity-run service offering free impartial debt advice to small businesses and the self-employed.
The service, which has recently launched its #BacktoBusiness campaign to help businesses start 2017 on a stronger financial footing, can offer support on issues ranging from managing cash flow and budgeting, to business rates and utility bills.
Business Debtline helps around 260 small businesses a year from Cornwall by phone. Energy debts are among the issues that small business owners seek help over from Business Debtline, with the organisation working increasingly with Energy UK and energy companies to support these individuals.
George said “it is vital that small business owners and self-employed people in Camborne and Redruth get the proper support they need to keep trading when times are tough. These enterprises make up a significant part of our local, and national, economy, so their success really is crucial”.
