On the 30th July 2020, the Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government announced there was £20m in funding available to small and medium-sized businesses to help them recover and adapt to a world with Coronavirus, Covid-19.

The scheme, due to run until the 28th February 2021, will be funded by the England European Regional Development Fund.

If you’re a Small or Medium-sized business that has been negatively impacted by the pandemic, you should consider if new technologies within your business can help you. Are you ready to host video-conferences via Teams or Zoom rather than visiting a client face to face? Can you access all your files safely when you’re working from home? Can you answer your desk phone from your home office?

If new technologies or equipment would be advantageous, now is the time to act and contact your local growth hub for funding. WestSpring IT can help with the procurement and implementation of any new technologies, including first-class consultancy on choosing the best products or systems that match your business needs.

You can find details of how to contact your local growth hub here at LEP Network, and details about the grant on the Government website.
