Sellafield Ltd appreciates that small businesses are vital to healthier, strong local communities and therefore we are committed to using our position specifically for the benefit of SMEs around the country and especially those to our sites.

By working with our supply chain to open up opportunities for SME suppliers we will stimulate growth and jobs whilst enhancing the Sellafield work programme by SMEs’ creative and innovate expertise.

Our socio-economic strategy includes three objectives to support growth:

  • Increase the proportion of small to medium enterprises (SME), work directly and indirectly, to stimulate economic growth, innovation and long term skills.
  • Cultivate an environment of co-operation and engagement across the supply chain and within the local community.
  • Support a wide range of infrastructure projects and settlement based commercial developments resulting from further nuclear development to sustain existing and new businesses within West Cumbria.
