Share This








You may have already picked up in the media that the Prime Minister announced earlier this week an additional £10 million business support scheme to help flood-affected businesses.

• Additional funding will be made available to local councils to support SME businesses in areas affected by flooding in England since December 2013.

• Funding to local authorities will be allocated on the basis of an assessment of the number of businesses affected by the floods.

• The allocations to local authorities will be confirmed on Thursday 20 February.

• Local authorities will have discretion on the maximum payments to individual businesses.

A Government backed business support helpline is now available, offering a free one hour call with a dedicated Business Support Adviser to help businesses get back on their feet. The helpline number is 0300 456 3565.

Full information can be found on the website.
