Free business support

Thanks to support from the players of the People's Postcode Lottery and the Connect Fund we are able to offer advice and guidance to social enterprises in the Humber region free of charge in 2020/21

If you need a "critical friend" or just want to share your thoughts with an impartial expert, get in touch.

We can't undertake to deliver projects on your behalf but we can help to guide you and your organisation.

In the Castleford area thanks to Wakefield’s PEAT Project - a Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) Programme that is part-financed by the European Structural and Investment Fund, we can support new and existing organisations in Castleford, Ferrybridge and Airedale


CERT staff are all Sfedi qualified business counsellors with 15-20 years of practical experience of developing, managing and expanding a wide range of social businesses. Our services are used by many of the leading enterprises in the area.

If for any reason we are not able to help you we will happily refer you to other organisations who are better placed.

Feel free to get in touch for an informal chat and if you want to use the service you can make use of our premises in Barton on Humber or we can come to you.


If you need help simply contact Neil King on 01652 240554 or
