New Bed & Breakfast Hardship Fund

A hardship fund for Bed & Breakfast and other Small Serviced Accommodation businesses has opened from Monday 15th June,  for applications.

The purpose of this fund is to provide hardship relief to B&B and other Small Serviced Accommodation businesses who do not have a business bank account and are operating with only a personal or joint personal bank account and have not been able to access support through other schemes.

Successful applicants who were in business prior to 6 April 2019 can apply to access a one-off payment of £3,000.

  • Individuals may only apply once and only in the Local Authority area they reside in.
  • This payment is a grant and not a loan. A grant awarded in respect of valid application therefore does not need to be refunded by the recipient.
  • If you receive the grant you can continue to work or take on other employment including voluntary work.
