I need support

The government has announced a further lockdown for England

Everyone is required to stay at home, except for a few very specific purposes: 

  • essential shopping
  • for work, if you absolutely cannot work from home
  • exercise
  • to seek medical assistance (including to get a Covid-19 test).

Visit the GOV.UK website for guidance on the national lockdown: stay at home

The Council is assisting businesses, including those required to close due to national restrictions or those who have been severely affected, to apply for Government grants, as well as to access additional funding that will be provided by the Government to councils.

Please note: that self-employed can now also apply for grants.

Visit the Business Support Grants page for the latest updates

The Council will also be working with businesses that remain open to ensure they do so safely and in a COVID secure way to help keep businesses in borough as healthy as possible.

Rapid testing for business

One in three people who have COVID-19 show no symptoms – they are asymptomatic and this is what Rapid Testing is designed for.

Rapid testing complements the testing for people with COVID symptoms and aims to identify people with COVID that we don’t know about.

We are therefore encouraging people who need to leave home for work to book a rapid test regularly.

How can your business help?

Support us in finding positive cases so that the chains of transmission can be broken and we can continue to work towards returning to normal life as soon and as safely as possible.

View the rapid testing for business page for more information on getting a test
