Apply for a grant to help your business do more with digital
About the scheme
COVID-19 restrictions have left many businesses facing the challenge of reaching their customers remotely by utilising digital services in new ways.
The ‘Go Digital’ scheme is a free business support programme designed to help your business do more with digital.
If you're a micro, small or medium-sized business, the scheme can help you make better use of digital technology through funding and one-to-one support.
What the scheme can help with
The scheme could include helping you learn how to:
- sell products and services online
- reach new customers using social media
- build customer databases
- develop new or existing websites and attract new visitors
- work out the best homeworking options for teams
If your application is successful, you'll be assigned an experienced business advisor. They'll:
- conduct a ‘digital audit’ and provide a comprehensive report to identify digital opportunities
- help the business put together an action plan
Once your 'digital audit' is complete, you'll be able to apply for a grant of up to £500. The funding will help you deliver the projects that your business advisor has recommended.
Apply for a Go Digital Grant
To apply for the Go Digital Grant you should be a senior decision maker for your business (for example, a senior manager, director, founder or chief executive), and:
