(Please note that we do not provide grants for websites.)
Some website grant information has been provided below for your convenience. Your eligibility for a grant may depend on where you live, the local business gateway people or your local authority.
If you think you may not be eligible or if you don't want to get involved with the often complex and time consuming requirements of the website grant application processes you may find that our website prices are already within your reach.
Local Authority Grants for a Website
There are several avenues available if you are seeking a grant for your website in the UK. Your first port of call should probably be your UK local authority.
Local authorities often have small business promotion schemes where funding assistance with ecommerce is available. This can be as much as 50% of the cost or in some cases even more. There will obviously be a ceiling on this.
Usually ecommerce and IT grants are available up to a maximum of £1000. The grant you receive is probably more than enough to finance an effective small business website from Toucher Web Design.
Call your local council office or have a look at their website where you should find some information on who to contact in their grant application process.
