What is the Help to Grow scheme?

The scheme includes two programmes to support SMEs: Help to Grow Management and Help to Grow Digital.

1. Help to Grow Management is a government-supported management training and networking programme to help SME leaders around the UK meet today’s business challenges. The 12-week programme, which is 90% subsidised by the government, is designed to help senior managers of SMEs reach their full potential, learn from peers and network with other businesses.

2. Help to Grow Digital provides tech support and allows eligible businesses to apply for a discount of up to 50% towards the costs of buying cutting-edge approved software, worth up to £5,000.
