There are several options available if you are seeking a grant for your website in the UK. Your first port of call should probably be your UK local authority.
Local authorities often have small business promotion schemes where funding assistance with ecommerce is available. This can be as much as 50% of the cost or in some cases even more. There will obviously be a ceiling on this.
Contact your local council office or have a look at their website where you should find some information on who to contact for their grant application process.
