NBSL are appealing for businesses to check the regional grants system for funding that could help businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic.
John King, North East Business Support Manager, is advising businesses to look at projects that the North East Business Support Fund could support during these unprecedented times.
With over £300,000 of grant funding for projects still available to businesses in County Durham and more than £90,000 still available across Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, businesses are being urged to check if any projects that they are planning to complete during this difficult time could be eligible.
John said, “We’ve made the application process simple, easy to understand and quick – taking around 15 minutes to complete online. Our team of advisers can handle all our contracting process virtually – minimising the impact of COVID-19.
“Many businesses are bringing in service providers to update their websites to reflect the current – and difficult – situation. Consultants are helping to revise operational procedures or provide HR support. All of which could be eligible for a grant of up to 40% of the total project cost”
The Fund can be used for various external resources including:
With less than a year left of the current fund, SMEs across the region are urged to apply now which could provide a lifeline at this difficult time.
