Business support - advice

​We offer a wide variety of advice, one-to-one sessions and drop-ins for anyone who is considering self employment, starting a new business or requires advice on intellectual property.

Drop-ins, one-to-one sessions and advice

Business basics - drop-ins

One to one drop-in advice sessions take place every Tuesday from 9:30am to 12pm at Northampton Central Library and Wellingborough Library.

Speak to advisors for help and information on taking the first steps to self-employment, and take advantage of our free full access to the library service's computer and internet facilities.
