Businesses in and around Great Yarmouth can now claim up to £6,000 in the latest round of grants to help businesses impacted by Covid.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council has now released the latest round of grants under the current phase of the Additional Restrictions Grant programme.

It had an expanded range of eligible businesses to include those in the hospitality, leisure and accommodation sectors.

Personal care businesses - such as chiropodists and hairdressers - can now also apply for help.

Eligible businesses will receive a cash payment of between £750 and £6,000, depending on their business type or rateable value.

Applications for the scheme are open now via the council's website, and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.

The scheme will close by February 28.
