At the end of July, the Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government announced there will be £20 million of new funding to help businesses across England recover from the effects of the pandemic. This new funding will give small and medium-sized businesses access to grants between £1,000 – £5,000*, to spend on new equipment, technology and specialist advice, to aid them in getting back on track.
The support will be fully funded by the government and distributed through Growth Hubs, embedded in local areas across England. To find out if your business is eligible for a grant, contact your local growth hub – you can find the local hub for your business by clicking here.
