The Government recently announced a new grant scheme that will be administered by the Local Enterprise Partnerships’ Growth Hubs – for us that’s the Coast to Capital Growth Hub.
For the full article read:
The funding to be allocated to the Growth Hubs within each Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) will be a minimum of £250,000 for each LEP area.
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) will be awarded grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to help them access new technology and other equipment as well as professional, legal, financial or other advice to help them get back on track.
The support is fully funded by the Government with no obligation for businesses to contribute financially.
The funding is being provided to address immediate needs and all grants must be awarded by 28 February 2021 and all activity fully completed by 31 March 2021.
Eligible businesses are advised to contact their local Growth Hub for details of how to access support through the scheme.
Website and contact information for each Growth Hub can be accessed via The LEP Network.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
