Business grants are payments provided by the UK government or a private organisation for a specific purpose - such as expansion, research and development or training. They’re different from other forms of finance, as the business is not required to pay the grant back nor give away a share of the firm in exchange.
East Midlands Chamber helps businesses across the region to find suitable grants and secure them, with many different types available. We’re looking to help our clients as much as we can, by signposting all of these opportunities and pointing them in the right direction.
Although grants are a great source of sizable funding, applying for a business grant can be time-consuming and require a lot of resources.
Visit our page on applying for grants and funding, where you’ll find details or organisations within the East Midlands that can help you get the grants you need to grow.
David Pearson, Director of Partnerships at East Midlands Chamber, said:
“It’s great that Duncan & Toplis has taken such a great initiative to provide their clients with information and guidance on how to apply for grants and funding - it really shows how much they care about their customers.
“The East Midlands Chamber’s information team will be delighted to provide local businesses with the latest intelligence on grants and funding opportunities for firms across Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, and Derbyshire. Simply give us a call on 0333 320 0333 and we’ll be happy to help in any way that we can!”
Adrian Reynolds, Managing Director at Duncan & Toplis, said:
“It’s so important to us at Duncan & Toplis to provide as much support and guidance as we can for our clients, including how to access grants and funding. By working with The East Midlands Chamber, we’re able to signpost our clients to the best places to enable them to find the right opportunities to grow and develop their businesses.
