Homeworking and networking in Surrey

Homeworking is booming in Surrey, according to The Surrey Advertiser which says that more than half of the county’s start-up and SME businesses now operate from home. Among the most popular types of homeworking businesses are health and beauty related; childcare; garden design; and IT services. It also quotes Woking-based Barbara Edwards, founder member of Guildford Independent club, establlshed to increase social and networking opportunities for local homeworkers. "But I do feel there could be more support for homeworkers in terms of networking groups," she says. "The main ones in this area tend to be flooded with accountants and solicitors and don’t cater for smaller operations.”
