Growing Your Business

The aim of this section of the site is to provide an overview of the issues you might face as you plan to grow your business, and link you with local providers who can provide services to help you.

There are a number of free business support schemes, often aimed at particular sectors or to help with specific issues.  Use our Advice and Grant Scheme search tool to search a whole range of business support or funding opportunities currently available to businesses looking to grow and expand.

If you are looking for professional advice, search our Local Contacts list, where you can search by location and type of professional advice you require.  For example, selecting Lincoln and Finance will provide you with information on Banking Institutions, Accountants and organisations running funding programmes.  Quick links to this facility can be found on the right hand side of every page throughout the website.

The GOV.UK  website provides excellent resources, videos and e-learning. You can also access all the government's support schemes on the Business is Great website. Click on the headings below to have a look:
