Offering support in response to COVID-19

The North East LEP offered +Extra Funding to Small and Micro businesses, charities, social enterprises and sole-traders seeking to cope in challenging trading conditions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding aimed to help the region's businesses to access an immediate alternative revenue stream, and a community of support.

This round of the Covid-19 Grant has been fully allocated, but you can still crowdfund in the North East by clicking the start crowdfunding button below.
