New Government Growth Voucher Scheme

Apply for your Growth Voucher for up to £2,000 worth of professional advice

The Government has launched a £30 million research programme to test the value to small businesses of accessing professional advice. The subsidised business support will be delivered in the form of randomly allocated Growth Vouchers, enabling businesses to receive a 50% subsidy towards the cost of obtaining advice on 5 key topics that help businesses to grow:

  • Cash flow and finance
  • Recruitment and developing staff
  • Improving Leadership and Management
  • Marketing, attracting and keeping customers
  • Making the most of digital technology

The Government will match your spend up to a maximum value of £2,000.

Businesses looking for advice can apply to the programme online where you will be randomly assigned to an online questionnaire or face-to-face business advice assessment.

Some businesses will be randomly chosen to get a voucher for up to £2,000 to help pay for business support in one of these specialist areas. You’ll have to match the amount with your own funds. You can then find a Growth Voucher adviser to work with on the Enterprise Nation Marketplace.

We hasten to add that Direct Tourism Services are approved Growth Voucher advisers and you will find us on this website! As qualified and experienced marketers, business and IT professionals, we would love to be your chosen advisers. What happens if you aren't allocated a voucher? - we are still here to help.
