Covid support grants for businesses

Both the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant and Additional Restrictions Grant schemes are now open for applications. The schemes are intended to support a range of businesses that have been impacted by Covid-19. More information, including details of grant thresholds and eligibility criteria can be found on our website


Household Support Fund

We have been allocated £382,000 of additional funding as part of Surrey County Council’s share of the Government’s new Household Support Grant.  We will be spending this grant in a range of different ways to reach our most vulnerable households, who may be struggling this winter. This includes supermarket vouchers and grants to voluntary and community groups who are supporting those most in need. For more information see our website.
