Businesses Gain Easier Access to 6,000 Funding Programmes

28th March 2012

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce has made it easier for members to access 6,000 UK and EU funding programmes.

The Chamber has launched a Grant Tracker service, which is free to members and helps them take advantage of the grants available to support growth. Funding sources outlined on the system include the European Commission, UK Government departments, local authorities, charitable trusts and corporate sponsors. As well as grants, information on loans, venture capital and advisory programmes are also available. Criteria to access the funding includes location, total project value, what the funding will be for and number of employees at the business. The Grant Tracker's search not only identifies funding opportunities for up-and-coming projects, but will also allow members to scan the database for a particular programme or provider without a specific project in mind. Amanda Pilgrim, head of business development at Sheffield Chamber, said: We want our members to prosper and to help them along the way we now have access to the UK's largest and most comprehensively supported database of its type. The Grant Tracker is a reservoir of information that is constantly growing and is continuously updated. Whether members are looking to expand their business, buy new machinery, move premises, develop existing premises or trade internationally there may be a grant out there to support them. Through the tracker we can now provide a comprehensive report showing members what is specifically available to their business. Hyper-links to e-mail and web addresses are provided to members during the process offering a direct line of communication to each funding provider. To find out what funding is available contact the Sheffield Chamber on 0114 201 8888 or email membership@scci.org.uk to create a bespoke report.
