About WF Connected

Waltham Forest Connected is an exciting in-person and digital community committed to the growth, sustainability and resilience of Waltham Forest’s business community.


Whether you’re starting from scratch with an exciting idea, establishing your small business as a permanent operation, or expanding into new markets and overcoming new challenges, we’re here to offer you the support, guidance and resources to help you succeed. A broad network open to anyone operating operating from a business, social enterprise, public sector, voluntary sector or community group in the borough, we’re here to help with events, advice and direction.


Our Elevate programme offers free advice, guidance and practical business support for small businesses, sole traders, freelancers, social enterprises and charities in Waltham Forest; our Business Directory can point you to fellow entrepreneurs, businesses and social organisations in the borough who can meet your business’ needs or become future business partners; and our Business Support Hub is updated regularly with everything you’ll need to make it in Waltham Forest and beyond.


“Like many businesses, we don’t have the time to spend searching the web for help and support, only to find that it doesn’t relate to us or an event is being held miles away. Waltham Forest Connected puts great information at our fingertips and has opened the door to many sources of local support”
