Critical financial support is now available to Woking’s small and micro businesses which operate with fixed property-related costs and are financially struggling due to the Coronavirus lockdown regulations.
Woking Borough Council has been awarded £671,750, under the Discretionary Grants Fund, by the Government to allocate grants to local small and micro businesses which did not qualify for previous business grant funding schemes.
“We appreciate that the current climate is a very unsettling time for all and for businesses without an income. If you're a business owner which meets the criteria for the Discretionary Grants Fund, please don’t delay and submit your application online.”
- Cllr Ayesha Azad, Woking Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Finance
