SME Support Fund

Birmingham City Council understands the immense strain that the Coronavirus is placing upon local businesses, their employees and the economy.

As a means of aiding Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME’s) in Birmingham who have been affected by the Coronavirus, we are working together with our colleagues at Ocean Outdoor by offering the opportunity to access free advertising on their outdoor digital media screens located throughout the city.

The Ocean SME Support Fund has been created to help support and stimulate businesses, jobs and the local economies in major UK cities by providing free access to their digital advertising space.

The support fund has a media value of £10 million and is administered in partnership with the local authorities Ocean Outdoor works with, including Birmingham City Council.

SME’s can register their interest by visiting: https://oceanoutdoor.com/SMEFund/ and submitting the online application form.
