    Oh dear,

    I had a quick look at the Business Link website which is a mine of information regarding raising finance for business etc. I don't have enough posts yet to post URL's, but if you go to the main Business Link dot gov dot uk website and follow the links it might point you in the right direction.

    Home> Finance and Grants> Grants and Government Support.

    There is a searchable directory of grants and available support so you might find something appropriate there?

    Good Luck and all the Best

      I was going to mention Business Link as well. When I had a meeting there a few years ago, they were trully hopeless, but I understand things may have changed.
      Definitely book an appointment to discuss your options with them. Maybe you can also try the local Chamber of Commerce?

      Be prepared for lengthy form filling... and good luck!

        We looked into the possiblity of grants for small businesses earlier this year and came up with a big fat zilch - unless you're under 30 years old.

        Maybe we should start a campaign on the grounds that they're all being ageist!

            There are plenty of other places to try than Fleabay.

                Hi Again,

                If it helps, I kind of understand your situation. I turn 30 in Feb and am expecting my 2nd baby in March! My 1st is only going to be 15 months old and I am soooooo tired I haven't the energy or excitement to try and keep my business going at the moment.

                I have a few things listed on eBay too but things do seem to be quiet at the moment. Hopefully they will pick up once people get back to work and start spending/ wasting their lunch hours surfing again! LOL

                I wish you all the best and I am sure things will pick up soon.
