Capital City Partnership, is the Integrated Employer Engagement (IEE) lead across the Edinburgh South East Scotland (ESES) City Region Deal.
The Partnership has developed a small grants programme to support micro-businesses across the six local authority areas of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Fife, Midlothian, Scottish Borders, and West Lothian.
Applications are invited from micro-businesses that require funding to assist their business to trade safely under new COVID-19 guidelines in order to maintain employment, prevent redundancy or for staff to work from home efficiently due to COVID-19. To be eligible your business must have either
- under 10 employees or,
- an annual turnover of less than £632,000
The fund can be used to purchase equipment, software or support deemed necessary to trade legally and that will support the retention of employees and contracts of employment.
Examples (but not limited to): – Laptops, iPad, printers, monitors, HDMI cables, Wifi/data dongles, desks, chairs, RSI prevention equipment, PPE.
