Small businesses

We offer a wide range of support and advice for small businesses, from advice on accessing finance and helping firms to find suitable premises, to support for establishing responsible business practices, sustainable and local procurement, and contingency planning processes.

Trainee and apprenticeships programmes

We run a variety of projects to support young people both in the City and City fringe boroughs to access work placements​. We also run a formal apprenticeships scheme and supports employers to take on apprentices.

Young artists

The Barbican Centre, Guildhall School and London Symphony Orchestra undertake outreach work linked to their artistic activities aimed at schools in the City Fringe and across East London.

The environment

Quality of life issues are also reflected in our programmes, from recycling to roof gardens and energy efficiency to Fairtrade. Our sustainability policy outlines the principles which we, and contractors, are expected to follow in all activities, plans and projects.
