The UK Government’s Help to Grow scheme aims to give small and medium-sized businesses the tools they need to innovate, grow and help drive recovery from coronavirus.

There are two programmes:


Sign up to the 12-week Help to Grow: Management course and get 1:1 support from a business mentor and access to an alumni network. Delivered in partnership with Small Business Charter, courses are running at leading business schools across the UK.​ The programme is 90% funded by the government so you only pay £750. Find out more on the Small Business Charter website.

If any Publishing Scotland members are interested in what is involved in the Management programme, we can put them in touch with a member who is taking part.


You’ll be able to access free, impartial online support about how digital technology can boost your business’s performance. From December 2021, if your business is eligible, you can also get a discount of up to 50% towards the costs of buying approved software, worth up to £5,000.
