Manufacturing Growth Programme Grant

The Manufacturing Growth Programme (MGP) provides free advice and support to manufacturing SMEs to help:

  • Identify opportunities and create plans for growth and improvement (free, no-obligation Manufacturing Review and Action Scoping Session)
  • cover 35% of the cost of working with external experts or coaches (maximum 35% of £10,000 project cost) 
  • Connect to wider support to maximise opportunities for growth

This fund is a useful source of funding to access experts to help with understanding and implementing new quality or environmental standards e.g. ISO 14001.

Simple application process

Please note: grant does not support capital expenditure.

The grant is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support the costs of working with an external expert/coach of your choice to implement a pre-agreed Growth/Improvement Action plan.
