  1. Sheffield City Region (SCR) - Sheffield City Region (SCR) Growth Hub acts as a gateway to enable businesses to access specialists in various areas of business development.
  1. Derby and Derbyshire and Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) - The Derby and Derbyshire and Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (D2N2) Growth Hub provides access to free expert business advisers, who provide support to help businesses to grow. It also provides a web portal that collects together the advice and services provided by all the various organisations in the area into one easy to access place.

Vision Derbyshire Business Support scheme

In recognition of the economic impact the COVID-19 pandemic had across Derbyshire a new scheme has been launched to support those wanting to set up their own business in the county.

The Vision Derbyshire Business Start-Up and Business Support Grant Scheme is open to people who live in Derbyshire who are starting their own business, or have recently set up a business in the last year.

A team of local expert business advisers are in place to offer free advice and support and funding of up to £10,000 per applicant is also available. You'll need to contact your allocated business adviser to access the grant support.
