Funds for brewers, travel agents and football centres
Brewers can apply for support
Three new funds have been launched to support businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
From today, local authorities will approach brewers, travel agents and indoor football centres inviting them to claim grants of £10,000 or £25,000.
A higher payment of £30,000 will be available to the largest brewers.
Councils will brief around 400 eligible businesses on their potential entitlement and ask them to provide supporting information and bank account details.
Owners do not need to apply, or contact the local authority.
