PFA Research has undertaken a survey of 400 businesses in the South East district of Cornwall. The research was commissioned by a consortium comprising the Rame Peninsula Trust Community Interest Company (CIC), the Looe Area Partnership, the Saltash Community Interest Company, Business Link and the former Caradon District Council (now part of Cornwall Council).
The objectives of the research was to identify the current and future needs of businesses within the SE Cornwall area in relation to ‘staffing and recruitment’, ‘skills and training’, ‘innovation’, ‘business growth and aspirations’, ‘premises’ and
‘business constraints’. The research findings will be used to enable the sponsoring organisations to develop strategies to respond effectively to the needs of local businesses both now and in the future.
The results of the survey have been presented to groups around the district. The report is available for download here:
