Marc is going to tell us about the ‘Greenshoots’ project which supplies grants to local business. He will explain how the funding works and what businesses can benefit from the grants. We will also learn how to access the money, how to get help in completing the application, and how long it all takes. To bring it to life, Marc will introduce us to a small local company who have gone through the process. They will explain their journey and what benefits they gained from it.
