Pilot Savings Programme

Project
PSP were appointed to design and implement a cost reduction scheme as part of Haringey Councils Good Economy Recovery Plan and High Street Recovery Action Plan.  Initially designed as a remote support campaign, PSP appointed a place support team and engaged with 350 businesses over a 12-week period.  As high streets reopened in April after the lockdown, the pilot saw the PSP team deliver an active campaign to high street and industrial businesses in Tottenham including signposting and supporting businesses.

Results
The pilot service gathered over 150 expressions of interest from businesses.  £94,000 in savings were identified within 12 weeks and a further £38,000 in savings were realised as part of the pilot for businesses that participated.  A report with recommendations highlighted key lessons learnt and identified opportunities for the council to explore and made recommendations for a council wide service.
