Latest information and advice

Oldham Council has pledged £100,000 to help businesses in the borough.

We’re offering local firms the chance to apply for funding to help them grow and expand.

The funding pot is part of our aim to help our businesses to thrive in uncertain financial times and to ensure one of the town’s biggest assets – our residents – have access to employment and jobs in their local communities.

Under the Oldham Business Grants scheme small, medium and large sized firms in our priority sectors such as Manufacturing and Digital will be able to apply for up to £10,000.

The fund is not just for businesses already established here, if you are thinking of relocating into the borough then you could also apply.

For more information about the grant, including details on eligibility, please fill out the form and one of the Business Support Team will get back to you.
