Grants & Funding

Through MAS you could access a grant of between £300-£3000 towards your next improvement project... with only a single form to complete.

Put simply, this makes it more affordable for you to get your project moving and keep costs to a minimum, ensuring a maximum return on your bottom line.  A standard MAS project will deliver a return of at least 66:1 against your initial investment.

If your company is ambitious with the drive to grow, and you have a project in mind that will increase profits, help secure new contracts or create new jobs, MAS could help you pay for it. And make sure you succeed.

You can even choose your own consultant; with the added assurance of a MAS Advisor to guide you both through the process from start to finish.

"Just heard that the MAS grant approval letter has been issued. I wanted to say thank you for such a speedy, efficient and painless process!  Thanks for all your help.”
