Awards organiser to help Local Businesses Access £200,000 of Government Funding

The Organisers of the 2011 North Antrim Business Awards have pledged to help North Antrim Businesses to access £200,000 of funding and support from government.

Accelerate Business Support Agency believe that over the next 2 months they will be able to secure funding to help local businesses develop their staff and managers, as well as funding for local entrepreneurs to develop themselves.

Marc McGerty from Accelerate Business Support Agency knows North Antrim well with over 10 years experience in Ballymoney and Moyle. Marc said,

“The North Antrim Workforce Development Programme is for all types of businesses in North Antrim that are looking to grow and develop.”

“The Programme aims to integrate the diverse range of support into one simple and easy to use initiative which has been developed with current funding and support opportunities in mind.”

The North Antrim Workforce Development Programme has a number of stages, where from the outset we will identify support and funding for your business, also helping to secure the funding, and then we will manage and coordinate everything to ensure that this support is delivered appropriately, conveniently and flexibly for your business.”

“The Workforce Development Programme is free, and the majority of the help and support that we will enable local businesses to access is free. Other initiatives are part funded typically at 40%.”

Marc concluded, “We only have budget for 20 North Antrim businesses, so if you want to develop your business and to access help and support that’s currently available give me a call immediately on 028 777 22136 or 07830361640.”
