A second round of Devon Work Hub Funding to bring forward the development of flexible work spaces for home-based workers and micro-enterprises across Devon has opened for applications, with grants of up to £20,000 on offer to organisations.

Devon County Council has funds available to support the development of work hubs in up to five market and coastal towns in Devon.  In addition to the funding, the County Council is also providing a comprehensive and wide-ranging package of support for successful bids. This will include initial training and advice, business support, provision of a marketing and branding toolkit, access to an interior design manual, and an on-line booking and membership system. It is also planned that there will also be a business advice service on offer to work hub users.

Applicants must register their intention to bid by 17:00 on 6th August 2012 (email:rachel.mildon@devon.gov.uk or tom.dixon@devon.gov.uk) with the deadline for completed applications 17:00 on 28th September 2012.
