Eligible businesses in the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym sectors may be entitled to a one-off cash grant of up to £18,000 from their local council.

Eligibility

Your business may be eligible if it is:

  • based in England
  • rate-paying
  • in the non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care or gym sectors

Businesses excluded from the fund

You cannot get funding if your business:

Grants under these 3 allowances can be combined for a potential total allowance of up to £10,935,000 (subject to exchange rates).
