We’ve successfully managed over £20 million worth of business grants over the last five years on behalf of local and national government. Our experience includes managing capital and revenue grants, high- and low-volume funding services and rapid-response programmes.
Capacity and capability
Our experienced team of specialists makes impartial, evidence-based funding decisions as they support SMEs to secure the grants they need to grow.
Our grant-management systems and quality-assurance processes are accredited to recognised ISO 9001 and IASME Gold standards, with every application undergoing a rigorous checking procedure.
