I run a butcher’s shop and am looking for a small grant in order to print some leaflets and advertise the business. What types are available?
Some grants offer financial assistance, while some offer free or subsidised services ranging from advice through to practical involvement with projects. While many schemes are available nationally, some are targeted locally. Eligibility for grants is dependent on your location, type of business and what you need the funds for.
The Grants and Support Directory allows you to search for potential sources of help with starting up or business development. The database contains grant and support schemes from central and local government as well as private organisations.
Applying for a grant can be a highly complex process. SmallBusiness.co.uk have produced a guide to how your business can get a business grant and what types of grants are available.
