Yesterday afternoon, the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Economy, Fergus Ewing MSP, outlined further details on the specific sectoral business support packages that will be available in January 2021.
The funding is part of the short term response to the Scottish Tourism Recovery Taskforce recommendations and follows discussions with industry to target support, both of which Scottish Chambers (SCC) has been closely involved in.
SCC has urged the Scottish Government to get behind a comprehensive package of support that will ensure businesses can preserve as many jobs as is possible over the coming weeks and months, in light of the recently announced changes to restrictions which will take place from Boxing Day.
Details and opening dates for all funding pots will be announced in due course.
Please see a summary of these packages below:
