The recent grant scheme to support eligible businesses in the supply chain to hospitality, accommodation, leisure, and entertainment sectors has been extended and grant amounts have been increased.
The scheme which was due to close on Friday 8 January has now been extended to Tuesday 16 February and grant payments will now increase from between £1868 and £4200 (depending on property costs) to between £3736 and £8400. The scheme gives supply chain businesses the opportunity to claim a one-off payment.
Those businesses who have already been successful in this scheme will receive an automatic top up to the new levels without needing to reapply, thanks to the streamlined system Barnsley Council has developed to make things as straightforward as possible for businesses.
Businesses can apply online here.
The scheme is designed to support supply chain businesses where the majority of the businesses activity is supplying to the hospitality, accommodation, leisure and entertainment sectors, and so are experiencing a significant loss of trade due to local and national restrictions. Examples may include breweries, catering companies and service and goods providers to restaurants and hotels. The scheme will also support companies involved in events, conferences, exhibitions, weddings, banqueting and travel companies and operators.
If you are a business in the supply chain to hospitality, accommodation, leisure, and entertainment sectors and need help to access the grants or want to find out more, please contact Enterprising Barnsley via our online web chat function, or email Invest@barnsley.gov.uk
