Business Support Finder

Our Business Support Finder is a searchable database that can help you find publicly-funded sources of assistance you may be eligible to apply for. Support may be available in a number of forms, including financial assistance and free or subsidised advice services. There may also be specific initiatives to help with starting up, managing or growing a business.

Before you start
Please be aware that applying for support can be complex and competitive and even if your business is eligible for a particular scheme or initiative, your application may not be successful.
