NBSL has been able to provide much needed grant funding throughout COVID-19 crisis – often supporting SMEs that needed to update their business models through the use of digital technology.

Working in conjunction with Business Northumberland and Berwick Upon Tweed’s Welcome Visitor Project, we’re pleased to announce our first virtual networking session, exclusively available to businesses across Berwick Upon Tweed & North Northumberland, on Thursday the 30 April from 2pm.

The sheer determination of North East businesses to adapt during the COVID-19 crisis has been incredible to see and support.

We're appealing for businesses to check the regional grants system for funding that could help businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are continuing to support the North East Growth Hub as it leads on latest advice & support available from government in response to COVID-19.


Register your business as an NBSL provider and stay up to date with the latest funding information.

If you provide business support services like marketing, business planning, human resources or financial planning find out how you could register with us to offer a grant of up to £3200 to your clients for work that you do for them.
