The recent business grant scheme to support eligible businesses in the supply chain to hospitality, accommodation, leisure and entertainment sectors has been extended and grant amounts increased.
The scheme which initially opened for three weeks and closed on 6 January 2021 has now been extended until 31 March 2021 and grant payments will now increase from between £1868 and £4200 (depending on property costs) to between £3736 and £8400. The scheme gives supply chain businesses the opportunity to claim a one-off payment.
Those businesses who have already been successful in this scheme will receive an automatic top up to the new levels without needing to reapply.

The scheme is designed to support supply chain businesses where the majority of the businesses activity is supplying to the hospitality, accommodation, leisure and entertainment sectors, and so are experiencing a significant loss of trade due to local and national restrictions. Examples may include breweries, catering companies and service and goods providers to restaurants and hotels. The scheme will also support companies involved in events, conferences, exhibitions, weddings, banqueting and travel companies and operators.
If you are a business in the supply chain to these sectors and have not yet received support, Business Doncaster encourage you to take advantage of the extension and the increase in grant amount. It’s critical that we support as many supply chain businesses as possible to ensure survival and help you to be ready to respond when the economy can start to reopen again.
If you think you are eligible our Business Doncaster advisors are on hand to provide guidance and support through the process.
If you are a business in the supply chain to hospitality, accommodation, leisure, and entertainment sectors and need help to access the grants or want to find out more, please contact Business Doncaster on telephone 01302 735555 or email email@example.com
