Two New Local Funds Announced
We’re aware of two new local grant schemes available to help small businesses deal with the impact of COVID-19:
OxLEP COVID-19 Business Resilience Fund
SMEs that have been based in Oxfordshire for at least one year can apply for revenue-based grants of up to £5K, or asset-based grants of up to £10K from the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP). Grants are to be used to help build business resilience, strengthen growth and protect jobs.
Applications opened on Friday 22nd May and will close at 17:00 on Friday 5th June.
Note: If your business is based outside of Oxfordshire, check with your local authority or local enterprise partnership for details of similar schemes in your area.
Salesforce & Enterprise Nation Small Business Fund
CRM solution provider Salesforce is partnering with Enterprise Nation to offer small businesses a £5K grant to help them through the COVID-19 outbreak.
To be eligible, your business must:
- Be a Limited Company or a Limited Liability Partnership
- Have been established for at least 12 months
- Have not received any other cash grant during 2020 in relation to COVID-19
- Be based in the UK with a British bank account

Applications for the South of England open on 15th June and will close on 21st June.
