UK Shared Prosperity Fund Business Support Programme
Updated 28 November 2023
The UKSPF Business Support Programme is now fully committed with current Expressions of Interest (EOI). We will open the programme again if we have any funding available after these have been addressed.
If the programme opens up again we will promote this through our weekly enewsletter, which you can register for here.
In the meantime there is still support available through:
- West Cheshire Start up Club - delivered in partnership with West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce, offering this fully funded service to both members and non-members of the Chamber.
- Race to Zero (Decarbonisation Project - delivery partner Groundwork) - access online, telephone and in person (for larger energy users) information, advice and support from sustainable business experts.
- Business Tapas - whether you are just starting up, a seasoned entrepreneur or a large-scale business expand your knowledge through curated bite-sized, actionable business insights, all in one place.
- Workshops - visit our events page for information about upcoming events.
The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion of funding for local investment by March 2025. The Fund aims to improve pride in place and increase life chances across the UK investing in communities and place, supporting local business, and people and skills.
