Delivered by Lancashire, for Lancashire.



Is it for you?

Following the impact of Coronavirus, the traditional Rosebud Fund has been renewed to allow for a more flexible approach to finance for businesses of all shapes and sizes across Lancashire. Our Rosebud team have worked hard to ensure that businesses have a fast and flexible way to access finance for their business.

With loans available from £10,000 to £300,000; getting back on track with your growth plans has never been as simple.

Local, fast, fair finance.

Businesses in the 12 local authority areas are eligible for the funding: Burnley; Chorley; Fylde; Hyndburn; Lancaster; Pendle; Preston; Ribble Valley; Rossendale; South Ribble; West Lancashire; Wyre. 

Businesses should be based in the Lancashire County Council administrative area or relocating here.

More Than Just Finance

Rosebud aims to support the growth of Lancashire businesses and the economy. We’re looking to support businesses on their road to recovery, including the creation and retention of jobs as well as resuming growth plans.

Rosebud finance includes access to complimentary support and advice that's tailored to your needs to give your business the best chance of success.

You can access and tap into a vast array of services (subject to eligibility) through Boost Business Lancashire, Lancashire's business growth hub. A central point with connectivity to a range of invaluable programmes designed to stimulate and support business growth.

You'll get ongoing hands-on support from your designated Rosebud Account Manager throughout your business journey including half-yearly meetings to review your growth plans.

This year alone 42% of lending was to returning clients further demonstrating the longevity of relationships with our Rosebud team.
