Suffolk Business Grant Scheme

Suffolk Business Grant Scheme

Funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the Suffolk Business Grant Scheme is delivered by Babergh District Council, East Suffolk Council, Ipswich Borough Council, Mid Suffolk District Council and West Suffolk Council.

The Suffolk district councils are looking to provide support to businesses across Suffolk to grow and become more productive, to encourage innovation and to become more environmentally sustainable through small grants to local SME businesses.

Businesses can apply for grants between £5,000 and £10,000, with a maximum grant intervention of 50%.

Businesses wishing to apply or for further guidance and support should first contact the New Anglia Growth Hub to discuss their project ideas by visiting: or call: 0300 333 6536.

The specialist Business Growth Advisers will work with you to ensure your project is suitable for the grant scheme (or advise you of other potential more suitable grant schemes) and support you in developing your application as required. As part of the process, an initial in-depth diagnostic exercise will be undertaken by New Anglia Growth Hub Business Advisers to determine eligibility of your business and identify what type of support you require.

The services of the Growth Hub are free and impartial, but you will need to register your details with them to access support.

Once you have spoken to an advisor, you can either complete the application form yourself via the following link or work with an advisor to complete this with you:
