The Barking Enterprise Centres (BEC) has a long history of supporting small businesses locally by providing affordable accommodation, mentoring, and training.
COVID-19 has not stopped us and over the last six months. The BEC is proud of the work it delivered through lockdown, delivering over 300 hours of business support and supporting over 600 businesses to access grant funding. Nearly £27 million was paid in grants to Barking and Dagenham-based businesses.
Did you know that we also gave payment breaks to all our tenants which put £120k back in the pocket of our businesses who call the BEC home!
The BEC remains committed to supporting this ongoing COVID world. We don’t consider businesses to be ‘Post-COVID19,’ we are all still very much working our way through it.
We are delighted to announce that our Directors have agreed with us that we need to guarantee a rent freeze until the summer of 2021. We hope this shows our commitment to helping businesses survive and thrive in these very strange times.
If you are looking for accommodation for your business then do get in touch 0208 227 3030 or firstname.lastname@example.org where Gemma will be glad to help.
