Government funding

Government funding 2015 update

Why is it is always so hard to find Government funding that, you are eligible for, and is actually useful to your business?

And why should you or I pay someone to find it for us?

For this reason if I hear of funding I am going to post it here Free of Charge. So we can all access it.

And please if you hear of other funding open to small business please e-mail me at and I will add it to this page.

PrintStuart, one of my fellow partners at Partner-in-Business, has posted a free useful guide to some of the funding currently available.

Although some is focused on the Oxfordshire area where HRSfB is based, there are also some national schemes.  Here is the link if you want to see if there is anything you can use.  Click here.  Or just call me.

growth-vouchersUnfortunately the Growth Voucher Scheme has now ended.  I was an appointed advisor for this Government scheme which offered matched funding for professional advice.  Although we are advised by Enterprise Nation there will be a new funding stream we have heard nothing as yet.  When I know I will post it here.

I promised to post any new funding information passed to me.  Again from Stuart from Partner in Business, the attachment below details the European funds that are about to go live in Oxfordshire. The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership is apparently now open for applications.  As you will read there is apparently around £20m to support growth and jobs.  As with all Government funding.  As always it just depends on many eligibility factors but it may be worth a look.

Hello, I’m Carole Thomson.  I hope one of the funding streams is of use to you.  I founded HR Support for Business to give the smaller businesses access to a trusted HR Resource when they need HR support or advice. But at a price affordable to the smaller business.

If it concerns the management of your workforce then I can help you.  Just  contact me for a free 30 minute consultation and we can discuss how I can best help you.

HR Resources BannerBased on the past needs of small businesses I have also developed key HR packages.

Each are designed to keep the quality of the HR resources and support high, but at a cost affordable to small businesses.

Why not have a look what we can offer you.  Just click the resource
