What is a delivery partner?
It’s important to us that we give all of our customers every opportunity to succeed, both with the Start Up Loan applications and the businesses as a whole. That’s why we employ a national network of Delivery Partner organisations with experienced business advisors.
In addition to helping applicants prepare their business plan and cash flow forecast, our Delivery Partners are responsible for assessing final loan applications and providing ongoing mentoring support to successful applicants. When you apply for a Start Up Loan, you will be paired with a business advisor to help you move things forward and be your key point of contact with the scheme.
We work closely with our Delivery Partners, who operate in various regions and industries across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, to ensure that responsible lending decisions are made.
We assign all applicants to one of our Delivery Partners and, where possible, match you with a Delivery Partner who operates in your local area.
You can also choose to work with a specific Delivery Partner by selecting them from a drop down list when you register your details to apply. Please note, to ensure we can effectively support you, you will only be able to work with one Delivery Partner and you will not be able to change this once you have submitted your application.
