However, with the outbreak of COVID-19 the Office of National Statistics stated that over a quarter of UK businesses have temporarily closed or have paused training due to lockdown, leading to many businesses seeking additional support.

To meet this need, the government has provided over £12bn worth of business funding for businesses during this period. 

 Nevertheless, it’s not always been easy for businesses to get a full picture on all the support available to them, or understand whether they can access the funding and when it will be made available. 

Introducing the ‘Search for Funding’ tool. BCU Advantage’s Search for Funding Tool offers free access to thousands of relevant grants and loans available to your business. 

 Below we’ve listed just a few reasons why we think this tool could support your business and not only help you understand what business funding support is available but help you get the right support at the right time: 

Access COVID 19 Government Funding Schemes all in one place… 

Our search tool keeps up to date with the latest business funding schemes to be offered by the government in relation to COVID 19. Your business can easily find which program is suitable for you, from job retention to CBILS – the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme. 

…And a host of other grants and loans to help you through this challenging time 

Don’t just limit your business to COVID 19 specific funding support, there are a whole host of other grants and loans out there to support your business from the local ART loan scheme giving businesses access to up to £150,000 to the Barclays Midlands Growth Fund.  

Businesses are able to search both on their size, organisation type and industry to find the right support for them. The tool provides targeted, local results that are specific to the area that you’re in so you’re able to easily access face-to-face or on the phone advice from the supplier if needed.  

Support to help you get going 

If your business is unfamiliar with applying for funding, there is plenty support through the tool to help you familiarise yourself with the processes as well as helpful hints and tips on getting around business jargon that may leave you confused. It can be a daunting process at first, but with thousands of pounds worth of support it would be a shame to miss out. 

Unsure of the impact of the funding? Access recent case studies 

If your business is unsure of which funding pots to access it can be useful to research the market or review local success stories. The platform also enables you to access recent success stories and news – so you can be sure you’re not missing out on any upcoming opportunities.  

Want to find funding today? 

Accessing the search for funding tool is easy, through our online portal. In future, you can return to the site with no need to re-register.
