We provide FREE independent support and signposting to new and existing businesses and to individuals who have an idea for a business but do not know where to start with the financial side of things.

British Business Bank 

British Business Bank is a government-owned business development bank dedicated to making finance markets work better for smaller businesses.

Whether you’re looking for finance to start a business, grow to the next level, or stay ahead of the competition, they deliver greater volume and choice of finance.

The Start up, Scale up and Stay ahead programmes may help to steer you in the right direction. 

A range of current business funding opportunities can be found by visiting the British Business Bank website here. In addition to this, Doncaster Council offers its own discretionary grant for companies looking to invest and create jobs.

Start-up businesses

We provide support in accessing finance for your business, present the opportunities available now and in the future and assist with the development of a case for grant funding, loans, equity or consultancy support.

The Business Enterprise Fund is a not for profit social enterprise, set up to provide loans to SME businesses that will help them thrive and grow when other lenders can’t fully assist.
