UPS and OutBritain join forces to recognise the UK’s Proudly Unstoppable small businesses

Posted: 17th August 2021

Our partners at OutBritain, the UK’s newest LGBT+ business network, are working with UPS, the global logistics leader, and the United States National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) to help UK based small and diverse businesses who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic.


Through their ‘Proudly Unstoppable’ campaign, UPS are offering UK small businesses the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to £4,500 each, with OutBritain and NGLCC organising and administering the give-away.


To apply, eligible small businesses* should complete this on-line form before midnight on the 18th August. Winners will be advised shortly after, with cheques arriving by UPS delivery (naturally).
