The Road to Recovery
Released On 10th Jun 2020
Since lockdown commenced on 24th March, South Somerset District Council has distributed £33.5m to 2,800+ eligible businesses through a variety of grants and other financial support. This support has been critical, enabling the business sector to continue functioning, albeit on a very limited capacity, throughout lockdown.
With Yeovil, and the South West business sector now looking towards recovery, the Heart of the South West LEP has published a Route Map to Recovery. Updated quarterly RM2R contains broad regional vision, insight and support, aligned to national recovery plans.
Please visit the two links shown below if you believe you remain eligible for business and employer-related financial and other support, and for all local authority support from South Somerset District Council and Somerset County Council.
