Financial Support

On this page, you will find information about the various initiatives announced by the UK Government to support businesses during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.  This will include information about how to apply for any relief.

Many of the schemes are in development.  These pages will be kept up to date as the Government, Birmingham City Council and other relevant delivery agents provide more detail on how the schemes will operate.

Each page explains what the relief is, how much is available, who can claim, and how.
