COVID-19 support for businesses

COVID-19 loan schemes

Staffordshire Start-up 0% interest loan scheme 

In partnership with Staffordshire County Council, we are offering interest-free start-up loans to qualifying businesses looking to invest and grow their business, to aid recovery from the COVID-19 restrictions or to get a brand new business idea off the ground.   

Loans are available from £3,000 - £5,000 and are interest-free. The application process is simple and the decisions are made within 4 weeks of application.   

Businesses eligible to apply for a loan are those who have participated in a business start-up mentoring* scheme / workshop or established businesses that have been trading for up to 2 years.   

*This mentoring service is free and invaluable to new businesses.
