SFSY Connection & Innovation Voucher Scheme

The SFSY Connection and Innovation Voucher Scheme offers Vouchers to encourage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to take-up faster digital connectivity (internet access), and to help fund innovative projects that can improve business performance through the use of technology, such as IT, cloud solutions, hosted telecoms and so on.


How It Works

Supported by Superfast South Yorkshire and the European Regional Development Fund, you can apply to have new digital connections and/or technical/innovative projects funded by up to half their value.

Connection Vouchers apply to projects of between £1,000 and £5,000 in value. Half of said value can be reclaimed using the Voucher scheme, meaning your investment in technology is achieved at 50% of the cost.

Innovation Vouchers apply to projects of between £5,000 and £24,999 in value. Half of said value can be reclaimed using the Voucher scheme, meaning your investment in technology is achieved at 50% of the cost.

The scheme applies to SME’s whose trading address falls into the Sheffield City Region, which covers the areas below:

How To Benefit

If you’re SME falls within the Sheffield City Region and has a technology project of any nature you could be eligible for 50% funding towards the net cost!
