Local & National Funding 

Discover sources of funding

Whilst there are various schemes and programmes that feature grant funding within OxLEP and OxLEP Business, it is always worth scanning further afield and researching other sources that are out there.

Research is the key word here, as each grant scheme will have very different rules, eligibility criteria, and key elements that may or may not align with your project.

We’ve brought together some of the more popular local and national funding schemes, which many of our clients have explored in the past and continue to access.
