Business Gateway is primarily an advisory service that can signpost and does not provide funding but we do have a wide knowledge of the grant funding available through the Council and other funding available elsewhere. To help you find funding for start-up and development of your business in Orkney, the Council has a Financial Assistance and Advice section on the website that you may find useful (see related links). Also the Business Gateway website has a Finance and Grants section with lots of useful information about finance and grants for businesses across the country (see related sites). Business Gateway can help you apply for funding, so please get in touch if you need help.
