COVID-19 Business Support

Redcar and Cleveland Visual Border

The Government has made special provision for the anticipated impacts of COVID-19 by funding a series of support measures. More information is available below.

***LATEST*** – Local Authority Discretionary Grant Fund

The Local Authority Discretionary Grant Fund (LADGF) Government guidance was issued on 13th May 2020 and gives the Council discretion over the dispersal of grants in the scheme. The LADGF is aimed at helping those small businesses who did not benefit from the recent previous Small Business Grant Fund or the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund. The guidance issued to the Council by the Government seeks to prioritise:

  • Small and micro businesses, as defined in Section 33 Part 2 of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 and the Companies Act 2006.
  • Businesses with relatively high ongoing fixed property-related costs.
  • Businesses which can demonstrate that they have suffered a significant fall in income due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Council is currently working on developing a grant dispersal methodology and will launch the application process for the grant regime in the week beginning 1st June 2020. As part of the grant regime launch the Council will publish guidance on its website and undertake publicity to reach as many businesses as possible.  Further information/guidance on eligibility etc. in the meantime, can be found on the Government website:
