RECESSION-HIT small businesses in the East of England are being offered help to find critical forms of funding and finance.

The East of England Development Agency's new 'Understanding Finance for Business' programme, launched on Monday includes an initial 'introduction to finance' workshop, where experts will work with businesses to identify which form of finance is most appropriate for them.

Richard Ellis, chair of EEDA, said: “It remains a tough time for businesses and raising finance is harder, taking longer than ever and can often be perceived as a complicated process. EEDA's new programme is about demystifying the subject, cutting through the jargon and really helping businesses to understand the finance options.”

Demand for the new 'Understanding Finance for Business' programme is expected to be high and places are limited. The workshop will take place at the Holiday Inn, Ipswich on Tuesday, June 30, from 9am-12.30pm and businesses are urged to register now at www.eeda.org.uk/finance.
