My Brexit Business Resource Hub (www.growthhub.london/brexithub) was launched last year at my business reception. Since then my policy officers have been raising awareness of the hub through existing business networks, attendance at local business shows, local authorities and their business databases, e-newsletters and social media.

This Brexit Business Resource Hub is a great resource for SMEs looking for advice on how they can prepare for Brexit and will soon be supplemented by a series of events to further support businesses during this challenging time. This will include 75 events taking place across at least 20 boroughs where businesses will get direct advice from experts as well signposting to the Brexit Business Resource Hub, which will grow over the coming months with additional resources such as podcasts, factsheets and webinars.
