In response to the unprecedented challenges that Oxfordshire’s small businesses are facing as a result of COVID-19, OxLEP is offering grants to local SMEs via the Business Resilience Fund and eScalate Grant Scheme.

The eScalate Grant Scheme:

The eScalate Grant Scheme provides up to a maximum of 50% of eligible costs, for grants of between £1000 and £25,000 once per business. The grant can be used to finance:

  • Consultancy/design of a new website
  • Website search engine optimisation;
  • Company branding, logo design and marketing collateral, including brochures, leaflets, etc.
  • E-commerce
  • Paid Social Media marketing

The Business Resilience Fund:

Oxfordshire’s small businesses (SMEs) and sole traders, including charities and social enterprises, can apply for revenue (income-based) grants of up to £5,000 to assist with activities which align with our three key aims which are to build business resilience, strengthen growth and protect jobs.

We can help you with the application process for both and provide you with a clear business plan on how a new website, an e-commerce website, search engine optimasation, new company branding and marketing material or paid social media marketing can contribute to building your business resilience and strengthen your company growth both during and after this current crisis.
