During these difficult times we would like to assure our portfolio businesses, investors and stakeholders that the NEL team are working to support you.

We have had many conversations with portfolio businesses in recent days and would like to applaud their positive attitudes and resilience throughout this situation. We will continue to be here should you need to talk and we’re happy to work with you to explore a way forward. If you have not already done so, please contact your dedicated portfolio executive to discuss the support they can offer you.

We are still accepting applications for growth funding from businesses across the region who have positively adapted their business models and diversified to tackle this challenge.
