WHILE these remain extremely difficult times for us all, Braintree District Council continues to do all it can to support residents during this difficult time.
A key responsibility is supporting our businesses by ensuring the swift and diligent processing of Government support grants and providing advice and support to the business community.
The information on the respective grants is constantly changing and our team at the council would advise those requiring help to do the following to keep up to date with the support available:
1. Ask to join: facebook.com/groups/braintreedistrictbusinesses
2. Sign up to our business bulletins at: braintree.gov.uk/tellmemore
3. Visit our website: braintree.gov.uk/helpforbusinesses
We are listening to the feedback from businesses and reviewing the criteria for the ARG discretionary grant. We plan to open a second phase within the next few weeks, covering the period from December, so that we can make another tranche of payments to businesses outside the scope of the other schemes.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding as council officers work extremely hard to provide the support that is needed. If they can be of any help, please do get in contact.
