More support for tourism and travel sector

Full details to be announced on Friday

Tourism and travel businesses are to be offered an extended range of support.

The sector continues to suffer financially with restrictions on the Island's borders due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Department for Enterprise is offering a second payment to those who applied previously under the Strategic Capacity scheme.

Full details of the support on offer will be available from Friday 10 July.

Businesses who rely heavily on tourism income can also apply for a contribution towards salary and ongoing overhead costs.

Self-employed workers may be eligible for a further grant of up to £3,000.

These extended measures are in addition to the Salary Support Scheme which will continue for the tourism and travel sectors until at least September.
