How do I get support for my business?
Who will be giving out grants to support small businesses?
The Government is providing additional funding for local authorities to support small businesses that already pay little or no business rates because of small business rate relief (SBRR), rural rate relief (RRR) and tapered relief. This will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to eligible businesses to help meet their ongoing business costs.
Gloucestershire’s district councils are responsible for the local distribution of the government’s Small Business Grant Funding. Find out more about the range of business support available from the government's Business Support site.
