Details of grants for small firms are contained in the DTI publication "A guide to sources of help for small firms". In addition, there are local sources of financial help. Small businesses seeking grants and advice about grants should contact their local Business Link. Grants and advice may also be available from Training and Enterprise Councils, Local Enterprise Companies in Scotland, LEDU in Northern Ireland, Local Enterprise Agencies, Local Authorities and Citizens Advice Bureaux.
