In addition to the £9m already pledged to support customer facing businesses

The Economic Recovery Group has announced a further £3.4 million of support for local businesses in response to continuing pressures around Covid-19.

This is in addition to financial support of over £9million announced earlier in December.

Enterprise Minister Dr Alex Allison says, "150 businesses have already applied to access funding through the Winter Disruption Scheme since it opened for applications, with almost £500k already being paid out in financial support.

"We recognise that Covid-19 has caused significant difficulties for businesses over the winter period, with many experiencing customer cancellations, and staff disruptions due to self-isolation, resulting in reduced trading over the typically busy festive season."

Those wishing to apply are asked to contact the Department for Enterprise by email at enterprisesupport@gov.im or by telephone on 687333 for further details.
