Finance and advice

If you are thinking of investing in your business in South Derbyshire, help is at hand.

You may be looking to invest in premises, equipment and/or workforce or to develop a new product or service.

Grants and loans are available from a range of sources. Typically, they will only meet part of the total project costs and are linked to new job creation and business growth. Applications for grants and loans are competitive, usually with a minimum and maximum amount that can be awarded.

Financial assistance includes general investment grants such as the D2 Enterprise Growth Fund. Support is also available for particular projects, such as the D2 Energy Efficiency grant, or for specific sectors such as the ‘FEAST’ food and drink industry grant.

If you would like to discuss your ideas and challenges, the South Derbyshire Business Advice Service offers free, impartial and confidential support.
