Our dedicated Business Growth Team offers a range of business support for Hartlepool businesses including assistance with grant programmes.

Are you starting a new business or considering an investment project in your business? You may be eligible for grant support. This is dependent upon specific grant criteria such as, but not limited to, the type of business, project planned and sector of your company. 

If you would like more information on the financial assistance available to your business, please contact our team. If appropriate, a member of the Business Support team will arrange a meeting with yourself to discuss your project and understand more about your business from your initial enquiry. For those who are likely to be eligible to receive support, our team can help to assist with your application and project progress to support a successful business investment. 

Provisional examples of business cases to which may be eligible for financial support include:

  • An investment project within key priority sectors in Hartlepool which enables job creation
  • A business start-up which creates a transition from unemployment to self-employment for the business owner
  • Direct implications from Covid-19 upon business operations




If you would like to get in touch with the Business Support team for further information please use the available contact methods below with an overview of your business and anticipated project/ investment.
