COVID-19 support for businesses

There are three main forms of financial support on offer from the borough council. Some of these are in partnership with other organisations. All of them have specific eligibility criteria and some are time limited so please check the details before applying.  

To help businesses respond to the challenges of reopening and moving forward, a number of support programmes for small businesses and apprentices have been launched in Newcastle-under-Lyme as part of a £5million countywide support package in partnership with Staffordshire County Councils and other districts in the county. 

Coronavirus support is available to employers and the self-employed, including sole traders and limited company directors. You may be eligible for loans, tax relief and cash grants, whether your business is open or closed.  This business support finder from GOV.UK will help to see what support is available for you and your business. 

GOV.UK also have lots of information about working safely during coronavirus.
