Hi Lee,

Shell LiveWIRE does not provide financial assistance to businesses.

The availability of funding differs from region to region and from project to project. It will be best to seek advice and information from your local business support organisation.

Try the most relevant of the following:

Business Link (England)

Business Connect (Wales)

Business Gateway (Scotland)

Invest Northern Ireland

The Economic Development department at your local council may also be a good source of information about grants and loans available to help small businesses. Obviously, your local banks will also be a good source of small loans, and most will offer packages especially for small businesses.

If you register online with Shell LiveWIRE at www.shell-livewire.org, you will be able to access a great deal of relevant information within the Be Your Own Boss section, including articles on Finance and Funding.
