Businesses that have had to close or experienced significant financial loss because of the second lockdown can apply for financial support.
Sevenoaks District Council is inviting businesses to apply for funding worth up to £3,000 if they had to close during the second national lockdown from 5 November 2020. Funding is also available to help those that have remained open but have seen a significant reduction in income.
To be eligible, businesses should have been providing in person services at their business premises before 5 November 2020. Other conditions apply.
Cllr Matthew Dickins, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance and Investments, says: “The Sevenoaks District hosts over six thousand businesses, each serving and enriching our community. The latest national restrictions have come just as many were only just getting back on their feet after some of the toughest months they’d ever experienced. But help is at hand with grant funding once again available to help support our District’s businesses through this challenging period.”
