We help to provide small businesses with access to the finance they need, expert business advice and export support. British Business Bank programmes are supporting £1.8bn of finance to over 40,000 smaller businesses, with a further £1.4bn of finance to mid-cap businesses.

The Business Growth Service provides support to firms with growth potential. Growth Hubs join up local resources to provide local support. And 48,000 businesses have been helped to export through our UK Trade and Investment support – of those, 90% were small businesses.
