unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to making the UK the best place to start and grow a business, ensuring all businesses have access to the advice and support they need<del class="ministerial"> to succeed to start, grow, and scale up their businesses</del>.</p><p> </p><p>All businesses can access core services, information and guidance on starting up and running a business, as well as their statutory rights and obligations, on our GOV.UK sites and <a href="http://www.gov.uk/browse/business" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/browse/business</a>. The Business Finance and Support Finder tool on the website provides information on how to access a wide range of Government-backed financial support for start-up businesses, such as funding and grant schemes.

In addition, since 2012, the Start-Up Loans Company (now part of BBB) has delivered over 67,000 loans worth over £534m. In Crawley they have issued 99 loans since 2012, worth over £680,000.</p><p> </p><p>This Government continues to work with Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to drive forward local growth. Through three rounds of competitive Growth Deals, Government has invested over £9 billion of funding, including £304.3 million to Coast to Capital LEP, which covers Crawley, to empower local areas to reach their potential, boosting national productivity and growth.</p><p> </p><p>We have also supported and invested in the creation of a network of 38 Growth Hubs. Businesses in the Crawley constituency can access business advice through the Coast to Capital Growth Hub. Led and governed by the Coast to Capital LEP, the Growth Hub provides a free, impartial, ‘single point of contact’ to help businesses in the area identify and access the right support for them at the right time no matter their size or sector. This support includes helping businesses prepare for Brexit. In 2018-19 the Coast to Capital Growth Hub supported over 1,503 businesses and helped more than 313 individuals start a business.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Through the National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW), the Government ensures that the lowest paid in our society are fairly rewarded for their work. April 2019’s increase to the NLW will see nearly 1.8 million workers in the UK receive a 4.9% pay rise. A full-time worker on the NLW will now be more than £2,750 better off over the year compared to when it was first announced in 2015.</p><p> </p><p>The table below provides estimates for the number and proportion of jobs in the UK and Yorkshire and the Humber on the NLW and NMW in 2019. The most recent available data for Barnsley, and South Yorkshire, shows that there were an estimated 5,500 workers and 47,200 workers respectively who were on the NLW or NMW.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p><ins class="ministerial"><strong>National Living Wage</strong></ins></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><ins class="ministerial"><strong>National Minimum Wage</strong></ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>Number of jobs</em></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>% of jobs</em></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>Number of jobs</em></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><em>% of jobs</em></ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial">UK</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">1,762,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">7.2%</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">341,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">9.8%</ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial">Yorkshire and the Humber</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">172,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">8.8%</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">36,000</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">12.0%</ins></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>
