Tees Valley Business Support Schemes: Small Grant Scheme

There is a potential funding opportunity that businesses can use to draw down funds which could be used to work with RAW Digital Training to provide support in helping you grow your business.

This scheme provides grant support to most manufacturing and service sector businesses (offering more than a local service) based in the Tees Valley. The scheme offers small grants so businesses can access external expertise and professional services to help them overcome barriers to their growth, leading to the creation or safeguarding of jobs. Grants (50% of project cost) of between £2,500 and £25,000 are available.
