As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses across the UK deepens, the ability to signpost available funding to businesses in need has never been more urgent. 

To meet this need Think Sandwell has free access for local businesses to the UK’s leading provider of funding information to the business, voluntary and public sector.

The Open4Business portal is updated regularly with new local, regional and national funding announcements and can be easily searched by businesses on the basis of their industry, region and business size. The portal then provides information on how to apply for funding and contact funders directly.

You can access the Sandwell Open4Business portal with a quick and simple registration but feel free to contact the team should you require any further support.
