Our Alchemy Team work closely with a number of agencies and organisations, to offer a single point of contact to businesses seeking support in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Area.

These partners come together to form an assessment panel to consider applications for business support. This assessment panel consists of representatives from Council’s business development staff, Enterprise Causeway, Roe Valley Enterprises, The Department for Communities (Jobs & Benefits), North West Regional College, Northern Regional College, InterTradeIreland, Labour Relations Agency and Invest NI.

The support recommended may consist of a referral to existing initiatives and mentoring programmes offered by our partner organisations in the area, and/or the business may receive a tailored programme from the Alchemy mentors.

The Alchemy officer will then inform the business of the support  agreed and what will happen next. No matter what programme of support is offered, the Alchemy Officer will monitor progress to ensure the business/client is receiving the help they requested within reasonable expectations.
