Leicester City Council and the LLEP are working together to support Leicester and Leicestershire SMEs through current business challenges including the effects of Covid19 and future rising energy bills. With a total funding pot of £250,000 available, local businesses can apply for grants up to £2,500. You should be looking to:
- measure and formulate activity to improve your carbon footprint
- invest in new equipment to improve business performance
- use consultants to improve business performance (for example energy saving initiatives, waste reduction, increasing productivity, marketing etc)
- invest in marketing services to increase, sustain and grow sales/turnover.
This is a one-off grant of £2,500 for eligible businesses. No match funding is required however, we will be more supportive of applications where the business is contributing to overall costs.
