COVID 19 BUSINESS SUPPORT – LATEST NEWS FOR BUSINESS
Although the world continues to suffer from the terrible effects of Covid-19, Warrington is tentatively re-opening its shops, restaurants, offices and factories. Warrington & Co has been assisting businesses during this difficult time, helping to process the applications for emergency funding from central government. These included:
- Small Business/Retail Hospitality & Leisure Grant – nearly £36m has been paid directly to struggling businesses who have experienced little or no revenue for 3 months.
- Discretionary Grant – an additional £1.6m was awarded to organisations who were ineligible for the first round of funding.
We have also signposted enquiries towards the Job Retention Scheme, Self-employment Income Support and Bounce Back Loans.
It will remain really challenging for Warrington businesses in the months ahead so please do take advantage of the support on offer:
- The Small Business and Retail, Hospitality & Leisure Grants are still available https://www.warrington.gov.uk/business-support-coronavirus-update
- The Cheshire & Warrington Business Growth Hub continues to provide support for many areas of company aspiration http://candwgrowthhub.co.uk/covid-19/
- Any additional support from central government will appear here https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus/business-support
Warrington Borough Council and partners have worked tirelessly to promote and introduce Covid compliant safety measures across the borough. This will establish much needed confidence in visiting shops, making quality products and delivering world class services.
Let’s continue to support our local businesses whilst staying safe and remaining vigilant.
