Young entrepreneurs get cash boost

Dales MP Patrick McLoughlin has welcomed news that funding for new businesses has been extended.

The Government has announced a £30 million boost to Start-Up Loans to create new businesses and help young people find jobs in the Dales.

The announcement brings the total pot for Start-Up Loans to more than £110 million over the next three years and will see the age range extended to 30 years old, enabling more people to take advantage of this fund.

Patrick commented: “This £30 million boost will make a huge difference to the hundreds of young people in Derbyshire Dales who have always wanted to own their own business, helping new companies get started and bringing jobs and growth to our economy.”
