Tap into grant support for business owners seeking to access specialist services
Information on Government grant support for the wider business community in England Learn how to access Government grant funding which has recently been made available to support businesses looking to buy certain equipment or access specialist support to help them through the COVID crisis.
The Government have announced that they have made available a new £20 million Grant Scheme which could allow businesses to access grants of between £1,000 to £5,000 to meet certain professional fees or to buy certain equipment.

The scheme was announced in July and is only available in England. Businesses can apply for funds through one of 38 local growth hubs in their Local Enterprise Partnership area. These hubs are partnered with the likes of Chambers of Commerce, Federation of Small Business, Universities, enterprise zones and banks. Each Local Enterprise Partnership will receive a minimum of £250,000.
 
The grantscan be used to access specialist services such as accounting (in particular for dealing with business planning and management and business support), HR, legal, IT and digital specialists.
