New grant funding to help SME manufacturers

A typical project would attract an average £1,000-£1,400 grant contribution towards a consultancy or coaching project of total investment around £3,000-£5,000. We can consider larger grants (max 35% contribution) for larger value projects depending on the business growth expectations (such as new Jobs Created). Each will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

This grant funding opportunity is for any company that makes, produces or assembles a product – and potentially, a company that designs a product, may also be eligible. Regarding project eligibility: the programme is designed to enable companies to bring in external skills such as coaching, mentoring or bespoke consultancy type support.

Typical projects to-date span:

  • Business / Finance strategy; Sales / Marketing strategy; Leadership & Management coaching; Operational Improvement - including Lean manufacturing;
  • Systems & Processes improvement – including ISO 9001 (2015) and ISO 14001; New Product Development – Strategy / Market Opportunities…
