NEW BUSINESS READINESS FUND FOR ‘NO DEAL’ BREXIT

Business groups in the Chesham & Amersham constituency area can now apply for funding from a new Business Readiness Fund of £10m which has been set up by the Government to help business prepare for leaving the EU without a negotiated settlement.

Rt Hon Dame Cheryl Gillan MP said that the funding is available to business organisations, trade associations, chartered institutes and other business membership bodies. Projects which provide free guidance, advice packs, webinars or training – whether linked to a particular sector or to a location – can apply.

Dame Cheryl said, “ There is an online application form available on https://www.gov.uk/brexit-business-grants” . The MP added that all the activities which are funded must be delivered by 31 October 2019.
