About the Fund

Further temporary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus came into effect from Friday 9 October.

The restrictions, backed by the support fund of up to £48 million for business and the existing UK Job Retention Scheme, were in place nationwide for 23 days, with tighter restrictions across central belt areas where the infection rate was highest.

As of 21 October 2020 the measures were extended until 6 am on Monday 2 November. The business support fund was adjusted  accordingly.

As outlined in the Strategic Framework, business grants will be available to cover every 4 week period of restrictions from 2 November.
