Quarry Accountancy Ltd was set up just over 12 months ago by Marie and had been run part time between her employed work and looking after 2 young children. In March 2014 Tricia Vickery joined the business and they decided to convert the company into a Community Interest Company. They have changed their business name as part of this process to My Support Partner C.I.C.
The business offers support services to small and medium sized businesses and also offers money management services to people accessing social care. The profits from the business are then reinvested into the business or used to support other local community projects that help maintain the independence of elderly and disabled people.
They told us that the £1,000 grant could not have come at a better time, having only been discussing how much they could afford to spend on marketing and branding the very morning they received the call. They now intend to use the money to get advice and professional input into their branding, marketing strategy and website so they can launch the new business.
So, what makes Quarry Accounting special?
“We feel our business is special as it uses the skills we have to not only support companies,” they told us, “but support more vulnerable people in society who can often be the target of financial abuse.”
Working closely with small businesses, Quarry Accounting is aware of what kind of advice would be helpful to small business owners:
“The best piece of advice we would give is to assess where your time and skills are best spent and get help with the other areas. If you spend all your time trying to learn how to build a website you’re not out there trying to get more business in.”
Congratulations once more to Quarry Accounting – worthy winners of £1,000 that will help them grow their new brand!
