Textiles Growth Programme

The scheme is a multi-million pound initiative which aims to support the national revival in textiles.

Advisers can help you to put together an eligible project for funding and guide you through the application process. They can also offer additional support in areas such as finance, manufacturing advice and international trade, along with skills and management development.

Some of the areas where support can be provided include:

  • Apparel and footwear manufacture
  • Manufacture of soft furnishings
  • Knitting, weaving and dying
  • Cut, make and trim
  • Carpet manufacture
  • Technical textiles
  • Manufacture of textiles machinery
  • Trading and wholesale

Three investment pots have been created to reflect the breadth of activity required to achieve the programme's objectives:

  • Capital grants - including land acquisition; Site preparation including demolition & equipment purchase
  • Training: Qualifications in the QCF from Entry to Level 4
  • In-house or bought-in research and development

The scheme is run by the Greater Manchester Growth Hub, but companies across High Peak are eligible.
