Wyred Up is a free business support network for businesses and organisations located in Wyre, or who contribute to Wyre’s economy.
In 2008, Wyre Council created the Wyred Up networking group to help enable businesses to connect across the borough and to encourage local businesses to trade with each other.
The council has relaunched this service to create a network to help local businesses access government grants, identify training and networking opportunities at preferential rates, and take advantage of business support services.
