The Regional Business Partner network works with local businesses in their region to give advice, support and is the central access point for all funding and support by central and local government to help them grow their businesses.

The RBP network has two funds operating currently and each fund serves a different purpose:
• The Management capability development fund is to support management training services which build business owner capability.
• The COVID-19 Business Advisory fund provides expert advisory services for businesses impacted through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to the differing purposes services cannot be registered under both funds.
Please refer to the service eligibility sections for each fund in the attached guide, in particular please note the categories applied to each fund. For any questions please contact .
