Roadmap out of lockdown

England has moved to step 4 of the roadmap. While coronavirus cases are high and rising, everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious. This is why some key protections will remain in place. Please visit the GOV.UK website for more information.

Coronavirus business support

The government has set out a range of support schemes for businesses to help them during the coronavirus outbreak.

East Hampshire District Council will lead on the administration of some grants and business rate relief. Other support can be accessed through the HMRC, the British Business Bank and the Bank of England.

There is also a lot of information on the government’s business support hub.
