European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

East Herts Council has been awarded a £1.2 million European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) contract from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to provide business support across the district between July 2020 and June 2023.

These funds will support social enterprises across East Herts either by giving them access to small capital grants valued between £3,000 and £5,000, or by providing 12 hours of FREE workshop and mentoring support.  Workshops can be tailored to meet the specific needs of social enterprises, as well as cover more broad areas like social media, marketing and HR topics.

For more information on how this funding can boost your social enterprise please see East Herts Launchpad 2 on the enterprise support alliance website
