Coventry and Warwickshire Business Support Programme

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funding for our programmes will conclude at the end of June 2023, as a result of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union. Our programme has utilised all available funding at this time. The team at Coventry City Council is actively seeking new funding.

If you want to stay informed about future funding, please complete our Business finance and support enquiry form and we will contact you as soon as we know more.
