Group Buying Guide

By pooling your orders with others, you can buy in bulk, and as the costs to shops or suppliers can be lower if there is a group of buyers you may benefit from significant discounts.

Funding

Here you will find details of different options to fund your business or project. These include private and government grants, loans, mortgages and crowdfunding. However, this is not a complete list and does not take into account what grants might be available in your local area, so it’s always best to check there first.
