Funding Opportunities for Business

We can provide advice and support to businesses who are considering accessing resources from a range of grant funding programmes, particularly European funds via the 2014 – 2020 European Structural Investment Funds and the Local Growth Fund offered by the Local Enterprise Partnership. 

If you are a small or medium enterprise business looking for support either directly or in partnership with other businesses or third sector organisations, contact us to see if we can help.   Contact Nicky Campbell, nicola.campbell@newcastle.gov.uk, 0191 277 7994.

Current projects that we are supporting include:

  • the growth accelerator programme being delivered by Bio-City to life sciences businesses from the Biosphere on Newcastle Helix
  • the Pathways to Innovation project supporting SME’s from the Business Innovation and Property Centre in the Library
  • the Business Energy Saving Team, BEST, advising businesses on energy efficiency measures.

The BEST project has awarded its first grant to The JMF Group to support an air to heat pump to reduce their energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

The JMF Group are presented with a cheque from the BEST project
