The ‘Help to Grow’ growth loans programme addresses the financing needs of smaller businesses which are struggling to raise sufficient senior debt to fund their growth opportunities.

The British Business Bank launched the initial phase of Help to Grow on 22 May 2016, with £30m of Help to Grow-supported lending made available to businesses. In January 2017, the challenger bank OakNorth, had joined the programme.

The Help to Grow programme is not currently open to new proposals.
