From Sheffield City Region

We are currently distributing millions of pounds to businesses in South Yorkshire that have been forced to close or are suffering a significant loss of income due to lockdown restrictions.

The financial support ranges from £1,000-£19,500 depending on circumstances and fixed property costs, but the deadline to apply is 31st March 2021, so we need your help to get the word out to as many people as possible before this date.

  • Businesses forced to close due to restrictions who do not pay business rates but who do have fixed property costs e.g. outlets in a food hall, multiple/shared occupancy in a premise where a landlord is the rate payer, self-employed people renting space to work, someone renting a chair in a salon.
  • Businesses that are open but have experienced a reduction in trade, e.g. B&Bs, hotels, businesses reliant on footfall and dealing with the public in person. ​Grant is based on rateable or rental value.
  • Companies that supply other businesses that have been forced to close or have reduced footfall and are therefore experiencing a significant reduction in turnover. E.g. travel agents, wedding suppliers and caterers, hospitality food and drink suppliers, event security, companies servicing gym equipment. ​
  • Further grant payments to businesses forced to close or suffering a significant loss of trade and not eligible for Government support. Eligibility of businesses has been expanded and grant payments have been increased, with top ups automatically sent to those previously receiving support. Home-based businesses and driving instructors to receive a one-off payment. 

All applications should be submitted online via the local council that the business is registered under:
