Business Support Grant: Covid-19

We are administering two funds on behalf of the Government:

  • the Small Business Grant Fund, and
  • the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund

If you’re not sure if you qualify for a grant, or which fund you qualify for there is more information here. Or you can download the Grant Funding FAQ's here.  Additionally, those businesses we think may be eligible will receive an email or letter from the Council

This form is provided to capture the information required by the Council to verify and make the payment of these grants.

You will need to have your business rate account reference, post code and the name of your business exactly as it appears on the letter / email that we sent you. You will also be required to upload a copy of the most recent bank statement for the business. Payments will be made by BACS to your business bank account.

If your business qualifies for a grant for more than one property you will need to complete the web form separately for each property.

For support filling out this form please call 0300 790 6290, Monday to Friday 09:00 - 17:00.

This is only one way in which business support is available. To see what other support you may qualify for please follow this link.
