Business finance, grants and loans

Finance, grants and loans

The Royal Borough of Greenwich does not offer any form of financial assistance, whether loans or grants.

Instead, Greenwich Business Support Service can refer you to a professional business adviser who can advise you on raising funds for your business, plus other aspects of financial management.

Interest-free loans from Carbon Trust

Interest free loans are available from the Carbon Trust to help businesses replace old equipment with new, energy efficient upgrades.

No security is required - and the loans scheme is designed so that anticipated energy savings cover monthly repayments.
