UKSPF Business Grants







New package of support for Worcestershire businesses – available now!

Businesses and start-ups across the county can now benefit from a new, comprehensive support package being run in partnership by local authorities in Worcestershire.

The new programmes are part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and Worcestershire County Council.

Whether you are just getting started, are looking to expand or want to make sustainable changes to your business, these programmes are designed to support you every step of the way.

The new support programmes aim to help businesses start up, scale up, grow, innovate and achieve net zero.

To enable you to find out more about the new support programmes, understand the application process and ask questions, register to attend launch events in North Worcestershire:

Bromsgrove and Redditch - Friday 22 September, Bromsgrove Golf Club, Old Stratford Rd, Bromsgrove B60 1LD, 8.30am – 10.45am.  Register here.

Wyre Forest – Monday 18 September, Hogarths Stone Manor Bromsgrove Rd, Kidderminster DY10 4PJ, 8.30 – 10.30am. Register here.

Support covers a range of activities including, 1-2-1 bespoke guidance, mentorship, coaching, facilitated peer-to-peer support, workshops, decarbonisation reviews and grants for eligible businesses.

These events are the perfect opportunity to learn about the new programmes, meet with programme leads, gain top tips on applying for grants and answer any questions you have.

As well as learning about the new business support programmes, delegates will also learn about other support opportunities available in your district and be inspired by businesses that have previously benefited from the support programmes. Places are limited, book early to avoid disappointment.

If you're unable to make one of the events, find out more about these new programmes by visiting Worcestershire County Council's website.
