Navigating the maze of UK government grants can be challenging. If you’re unsure about your options or simply don’t have the time or resources to apply, we’re here to help. By downloading Grants 101, you will learn the ins and outs of how to secure grant funding for your business.

Grants incentivise businesses to undertake projects in areas of government priority, such as semi-conductor manufacturing or decarbonisation. Unlike other incentives, like R&D tax credits, the application process for grant funding begins before any expenses are incurred.

Administered by Innovate UK and other government departments, these grants offer significant opportunities. With Innovate UK’s budget for innovation grants up 65% from 2023 to 2025 and £4.5 billion allocated for net zero initiatives until 2025, now is the perfect time to explore your options.
