Help for businesses and employers

Share this post:

Southwark Council has published detailed information on support for local businesses and employers during the coronavirus outbreak.

This includes information about business rates relief, grants and business loans.

The website also has useful information and links for the self-employed and for employees facing redundancy.

UPDATE (15 April): The council has launched a £2m Business Hardship Fund.

Small, local businesses that are in hardship as a result of the outbreak – and which aren’t  entitled to support from the main Government schemes – may be able to access a grant from this new council fund. Grants of up to £2,500, £5,000 or £10,000 are available to eligible businesses, depending on the size of the business and level of need.
