Vouchers for Growing Businesses

Posted: 30th January 2014

What are Growth Vouchers?

Announced by the Chancellor in the 2013 Budget and championed by the PM’s Enterprise Adviser, Lord Young, the Growth Vouchers programme will deliver subsidies to help businesses access the advice they need to help them grow.
The majority of small businesses that participate in this programme will be allocated vouchers to spend on strategic advice from suppliers in the private sector, matched with their own funds, on one of 5 categories of support:

  1.  Managing cashflow, late payments and negotiating finance
  2.  Developing skills and taking on staff
  3.  Improving Leadership and Management
  4.  Marketing, attracting and keeping customers
  5.  Making the most of digital technology

The Growth Vouchers programme is available across the whole of England. www.gov.uk/apply-growth-vouchers
