Building grants up for grabs

WIGAN’S construction and built environment industry is being urged to apply for a fund aimed at helping businesses boost profits.

The launch of the £10m Growth Fund followed figures released in the Construction Skills Network report, which revealed that the North West will continue to face challenging conditions for the next two years.

Steve Housden, sector strategy manager for CITB-ConstructionSkills in the North West, said: “We’re delighted to be able to add value to the industry in Wigan through initiatives such as the £10m Growth Fund, and it represents one of the key ways that we are looking to help develop the right growth skills in the region.

“Applications are coming in fast, so it’s important that anyone in Wigan interested visits the CITB-ConstructionSkills website to download the documentation and gets their bid in as soon as possible.”
