Support and Funding for Manufacturers

“There’s never any support for manufacturers!”

How often have we said or heard  that? Well in fact there’s a great deal of support and funding out there at the moment in Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield and throughout the Leeds City Region.

Wakefield Manufacturing Forum and FSB hosted an event to find out about what’s on offer.

Sponsored by Close Brothers asset finance, manufacturers were able to talk directly about their support and funding needs to providers of;


  • Grants & loans,
  • Skills and training help
  • Tax credit advice,
  • Advice and help with apprentices 
  • Help to find new customers or suppliers abroad, 
  • Help to solve production issues,
  • Help to innovate and bring new products to market

Over 50 people attended the event, discussing their specific needs with the providers and networking over the free lunch provided by FSB.
