Helping local authorities reach stakeholders
We work with you to engage business and residents.
1284 provides comms support for local authorities needing to engage small business.
We’ve worked with East Midlands councils, universities and other partners to build public participation in funded growth programmes.
As a startup ourselves, we appreciate the value of participation - but also the resource challenges faced by small businesses.
The Careers Hub wanted to mark its anniversary by setting out all it had achieved over its first five years. 1284 proposed an impact report and small PR campaign, both of which were delivered to budget and deadline.
George and Amy offered advice and insight throughout, helping us shape the Impact Report for our broad audience.

Working with Partners
1284 works at district and unitary level on developing funnels for business support programmes in the East Midlands.
Our purpose is to help officers encourage SMEs to access services designed to create jobs, growth, and prosperity.
We bring together peer networks and stakeholder groups through reliable, brand-safe communications with local employers.
The challenge facing local authorities as they encourage businesses onto growth programmes often lies in outreach and communication.
Many SMEs are unaware of availability of accelerators or the value that they provide.
Our comms help you persuade time-poor business owners of the value of participating in courses focussed on productivity, innovation, and growth.
To meet programme targets, you need to convince potential participants that there will be a return on their investment of time.
There may be reluctance among small businesses to unless there is clear and relevant value to be gained.
1284 uses Government Communication Service frameworks and tools to help you achieve the registrations needed to reach your goal.
