Coronavirus: Grants for businesses and charities

Find out what financial support you can get for your business.

The government has announced additional economic support to help businesses who have been most impacted by the Omicron variant.

The government has introduced a new grant scheme to support businesses that are experiencing difficulties because of the Omicron variant. Hospitality (including accommodation) and leisure premises will benefit from targeted grant support. The Additional Restrictions Grant will also be topped up so local authorities (LAs) can continue to use their discretion to support other businesses in their area, based on local economic need.
