Council grants and funding

Councils are now starting to launch pages on their websites for businesses who are eligible for Coronavirus grant assistance through either the Small Business Grant Scheme or the Retail Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund grants. They are encouraging such businesses to submit their details electronically through these pages.

The Somerset West and Taunton page can be found here: https://www.somersetwestandtaunton.gov.uk/business-rates/business-grants-covid-19-response/

And the Dorset equivalent can be found here: https://www.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/emergencies-severe-weather/emergencies/coronavirus/business-and-employers/coronavirus-business-support-grant-funding.aspx

We suspect that other councils will follow suit in the coming days.
