Kickstart Grants

Status: Live

Following last week's Business Brief, the Kickstart Grant Scheme has now gone live.

Grant funding of between £1,000 and £3,000 is available for eligible businesses. Activities supported by the grant can include:


  • Specialist professional advice such as HR, financial including accountancy, IT and digital
  • The purchase of minor equipment to support your business to adapt or adopt new technology in order to continue to deliver business activity


Businesses can make a single application for the Kickstart Grant Scheme. Due to a technical issue, the online form is currently unavailable. The Kickstart Team have asked that all businesses complete the PDF form instead.
