Sidcup Partners have been in contact with Bexley council from the announcement of the second lockdown regarding what support is available to businesses.
Applications are not live until later this week. However there is now some updated information available on the Council website: https://www.bexley.gov.uk/coronavirus-covid-19/services-status/guidance-and-support-businesses.
At the moment this page provides links to the latest guidance on each of the schemes on the Government website so people will have a guide to whether they may be eligible.
There are 4 schemes in total. The scheme that is most likely to impact the largest number of businesses and will be up and running quicker is the Local Restriction Support Grant (Closed) which is targeted at businesses that will have had to close by law due to the lockdown. The council are hoping that an application form for this can go live this week.
Once application forms go live, they will appear on the above web page.
It is also intended for Capita to write to each business we expect to be eligible for the LRSG (Closed) scheme to invite applications but want to publicise this ourselves .
