Our business relief fund offering one-off payments of up to £500 to help small businesses survive the coronavirus pandemic has been suspended due to unprecedented demand.
We are currently processing the applications received so far as quickly as possible and prioritising self-employed applicants to ensure they are the first to receive payments.
The government has announced a wide range of measures to support businesses across the country including a business rate holiday and a range of grants. Visit our business pages for details of other support available.
The fund provides a direct grant that is intended only to provide immediate financial relief in this time of financial hardship. It is not intended to cover regular costs or losses over an extended period.
