Growth Hub Network Reopening Summer 2021 update

As we move to step 4 of the roadmap the Government will continue to manage the risk of serious illness from the spread of the virus.

This will mark a new phase in the Government’s response to the pandemic, moving away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk.

As such, we are looking forward to welcoming businesses back into the Hubs across the county. Each Growth Hub in our network is based within a partner organisation, and so each Hub has a unique set-up for reopening.
