Description of the contract

The London Borough of Hounslow wish to appoint a suitably qualified individual or organisation to deliver a programme of financial literacy support to micro and small business (< 50 employees) in Hounslow. Hounslow is ranked within the top 15% of local areas in the UK Competitive Index and has a business base of about 10,000 businesses. Business start-up rates are high but so are business failure rates. Over 20% of businesses are less than 2 years old. 70% of businesses have less than 5 employees. Further information can be found in the local economic assessment (www.hounslow.gov.uk/index/business/economic_development/local_economic_assessment.htm). A recent business support intervention funded by the Outer London Fund (round 1) identified a lack of financial literacy among small and micro businesses owners and managers.
