As Summer has finally made an appearance, we thought it was about time for a quick update on how businesses are helping to support their clients with our range of grant funding programmes across the North East.

Over two thousand North East based service providers (everything from accountants, business advisers and growth consultants to marketing agencies, web developers and graphic designers) have registered with us over the past few years, giving them access to information and support that they can use to help their clients access our funding.  When you register, you'll be allocated an account manager who's on hand to talk you through the processes and discuss your clients and their projects - having an understanding of how our funding works is a huge benefit when you're talking to clients and registering as a provider is definitely the best way to find out!

You can find out more about our provider programme here and you can register here

Get along to a provider update to find out more.

Whether you're already registered as a provider or you're just thinking about it and want to find out more, why not register to attend one of our update sessions where you can meet our advisers, find out how the programmes are progressing and get a better understanding how we can add value to your client base.
