Minister Paschal Donohoe has launched Ireland’s first comprehensive business support pack in Waterford

February 29th – Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber has officially launched Irelands first ‘Business Support Pack’ to provide information on grants, resources, funding and supports.

Exclusively sponsored by Eirgrid, this ‘Business Support Pack’ pack was compiled by the Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber to provide information on grants, resources, funding and supports for businesses at all stages of your business journey in Ireland.

The pack includes information on many resources available to businesses in many areas including:

  • Employer and workforce supports to attain talent
  • Training, upskilling & apprenticeships
  • Energy supports
  • General business supports & mentoring
  • Finance & credit options
  • Financial Planning for Business Owners

The ‘Business Support Pack’ pack was put together to address concerns raised recently in a D&WW Chamber survey,   around the overwhelming amount of business information members face, and  trying to decipher what was relevant to them.

Launching the Business Support Pack, Minister Donohoe said “There are so many supports available for businesses. Well done to the Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber, who have put together this comprehensive pack so everything businesses need to know is at their fingertips. Businesses using the pack will be quickly guided to what is relevant to their situation, minimising confusion and strengthening connections between supports and business sustainability.”

EirGrid is exclusive sponsor of the new Business Support Pack. Speaking about this initiative Sinead Dooley, Head of Public Engagement said “We are proud to work with the award-winning Chamber to deliver such an important resource for businesses. We are conscious about business support and sustainability, therefore sponsoring such a proactive initiative was an obvious decision for us.”

Speaking about the pack D&WW Chamber President Oren Byrne said: “It can be a very daunting experience for people in business to figure out what supports, grants and resources they can access. Working on behalf of our members, we break through confusion and simplify the presentation of information. We do the heavy lifting so members don’t have to, they can get on with running their business feeling informed and empowered.”
