Eden Business Support Fund

If you are a local Eden business looking to expand and develop but have struggled to get backing from mainstream lenders, the Eden Business Support Fund could provide you with an alternative.

Enterprise Answers have partnered with Eden District Council each contributing £250,000 to create a £500,000 fund to which Eden businesses can apply to support their growth and development plans.

Businesses applying for a loan would be expected to demonstrate through a business plan how they intend to grow, develop and upskill their workforce.

The fund can provide loans of between £10,000 and £100,000 for no more than eight years. To see if your business is eligible to apply for a loan please see the qualifying criteria below.
