Businesses offered free funding advice

Skills and Growth Company to help businesses hoping to secure funding

Cheshire East Council is inviting businesses from across the borough to learn about the business support and funding available for growth projects.

The free-to-attend lunchtime event on 25th January, provided by the authority’s arms-length Skills and Growth Company, will bring together guest speakers to discuss the funding available to help businesses grow. 

The event will cover the practical support available to improve chances of securing finance, as well as a government-backed lending scheme, Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF), which has been set up to provide more than £400m of investment to businesses.

After the speakers there will be a networking lunch, where there will be an opportunity to meet with a range of funding and business support specialists.

Speakers at the Alderley Park Conference Centre event will include representatives from The British Business Bank, The Skills and Growth Company’s ‘access 2 finance service’ and successful grant applicants, who will share their experience of applying and receiving grant funding.

There will also be a panel discussion from the speakers, with a question and answer session.

To book on the event, which will run from 11.30am to 2pm at Alderley Park, visit or alternatively, call the Skills and Growth Company on 0300 123 5001.
