Businesses can apply for a grant to fund a new business website or an upgrade to an existing website, an online booking system, an e-commerce platform, the creation of a mobile app, digital skills training courses or cyber security training.

The grant has been launched during Digital Boost for Business Week, which runs from Monday, November 6 to Wednesday, November 15 and is an initiative to support Uttlesford's businesses to increase their digital presence.
