How to apply

Application process for the DRIVE programme

Firstly, you will need to contact us outlining your business and aspirations for your project.

You can contact us by:

We will review your proposal and contact you if we think you're eligible. Afterwards, we will arrange a Teams or Zoom call with you to go through the eligibility screening form.

If your project fits with the DRIVE programme, you'll be referred to a Business Mentor. They'll contact you to set-up your 12 hours of business support.

After your mentoring, you can then write and submit a grant application for your project.

A Finance and Appraisal Officer will assess your application and a Local Investment Board will decide whether to approve your project and grant.
