The LEP Digital Growth Voucher Scheme is Back

By October 18, 2017Stories

The Digital Enterprise Scheme, which is a partnership funded and supported by the European Regional Development Fund, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and local councils has announced Phase Two of the digital growth voucher scheme.

The scheme is an innovative, business support programme which helps eligible businesses in the Leeds City Region to achieve digital transformation and continued growth.

Eligible businesses in Leeds, Calderdale, Kirklees, Bradford, Selby, Craven, Harrogate, York and Wakefield can apply for digital growth vouchers which can fund up to 50% of a digital investment project.

This means your business could be eligible for vouchers worth between £1,000 – £5,000 to cover activity including digital marketing, social media, SEO and web development along with other services such as IT, telephony and digital connectivity.

KC Communications are an approved supplier of the LEP, which means that the vouchers can be used against a range of our services including digital marketing, social media, SEO and web development.

There are some eligibility criteria for the voucher scheme should you wish to apply, which include:

  • You must be based in the Leeds City Region
  • You must employ fewer than 250 employees
  • With a turnover under £43 million per annum

To check your eligibility, you can complete a form on the Digital Enterprise Scheme website.
