FREE BUSINESS SUPPORT SCHEMES FOR YORKSHIRE’S ARTISTS AND VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS!

In a time when it’s increasingly difficult to get the money to support your business or organisation, it’s important that everyone knows where funding does actually exist!  CidaCo is involved with two such schemes, one for creative people, and the other for those in the broader voluntary sector. Both provide the opportunity for you to get help advice and possible financial assistance. If you are eligible (and it’s not difficult!), we can work with you to help in a range of different ways and it won’t cost you anything!:
