PKF Francis Clark and how we can help
We have prepared a brochure giving examples of work that we can help you with using this grant (see further below).
If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me or your usual PKF Francis Clark point of contact.
To borrow text from the Dorset Growth Hub, the key is going to be:
• You will need to demonstrate how the COVID-19 situation has impacted the business and how this grant will help to make positive change in order to help business survival and job safeguarding
• Clear articulation of what the business plans to do (the project) and how the project is a step change from existing operations (a point of difference or additionality) are the key to a successful grant application
