About business support

CCCF business support is a free business review and advice service. It is provided to eligible CCCF grant recipients. Support is delivered through business advisors who work with a service to help identify ways to improve financial viability and sustainability.

This may include helping you to:

  • implement sound business practices
  • identify cost drivers and potential savings
  • transition to a more appropriate business model and/or service delivery model.

In July 2023, we announced business support would be available for the 2023–24 financial year.
