About the Fund

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

The new restrictions, backed by a new support fund of up to £48 million for business and the existing UK Job Retention Scheme, will be in place nationwide for 16 days, with tighter restrictions across central belt areas where the infection rate is highest.

As of 21 October 2020 the measures have been extended for a further week until 6 am on Monday 2 November. The business support fund has been adjusted  accordingly.
