Access higher levels of financial support even if you’re a large company

Assisted Areas are defined parts of the country where businesses can access higher levels of financial public support. Large companies, which are usually ineligible for public support, can also apply for grants.

Support is available for businesses already located in Assisted Areas, and those looking to expand/relocate into an Assisted Area.

Assisted Area status has been awarded to the following wards in the Bradford District:

  • City

  • Bradford Moor
  • Tong
  • Wyke
