Is the support being offered free of charge?

Yes – thanks to the project’s funding, any support offered to businesses via Shop Chester-le-Street is free of charge.

In some cases – for example, if a business we work with requires a new website, or wants someone to manage their social media for them on an ongoing basis – we may refer those businesses to other trusted local companies that can help them further.

It will then be up to those businesses to decide whether they wish to make use of other services that are outside the scope of what the Shop Chester-le-Street project can offer.
