Scottish Strategic Framework Business Fund - How can it help me?

The Scottish Government has announced a new set of funding that will now include "mobile close contact services" and specifically mentions it is for driving instructors!

The rules for eligibility are as follows:

  • You must apply for the Strategic Framework Business Fund by 5 February 2021

  • your business has been directly impacted by restrictions, and the type/sector is specifically mentioned in the below list

  • your business is registered for non-domestic rates - if you pay rates through a landlord rather than directly to a local authority you can still apply but must provide evidence through a copy of the lease agreement

Now the amount you will receive is dependant on your business but you can expect between £1000-£3000

Similarly to the Additional Restrictions Grant you will need to apply via your local council - read more about this grant and how to apply here
