Following the recent devastating floods across Cumbria, the Cumbria Growth Hub have made funding available to support businesses who have been severely affected. The funding is there to help businesses that have been affected, either directly through their premises being damaged, or indirectly through issues such as road closures.
These grants are available to small and medium sized businesses who have up to 250 full-time equivalent employees. This funding is not available to agricultural or farming businesses who can claim for separate funding through Defra (click here for more information on funding available for farmers).
Businesses are able to use this funding for a variety of purposes in order to support their survival. The funding can assist in a number of areas such as: the implementation of a recovery action plan, helping towards interest payments on loans, replacing equipment, training for your team, and marketing.
To apply for your funding visit www.cumbriagrowthhub.co.uk where you will find an application pack which includes guidance notes on the scheme.
