Small Business Grant and Apprenticeship Grant

If you are hoping to set up a new business, if you want to grow your existing small business, or if you want to take on an apprentice, you can apply from 3 December for a share of these grant funds to help you out.

For small business grants, you can apply for up to £2,000 which you will need to match with additional funds. For example, if you want to buy some equipment that costs £1,500, you can apply for £750 from the grant fund, and source the additional £750 needed from your own money, a bank loan etc. You must be able to demonstrate how the project will develop or establish your business and what difference it will make.
