Dorset County Council is announcing the last call for applications to the discretionary Grant Scheme. As part of our efforts to promote small business in Dorset, we want to help get the word out there about these grants that may be the difference between the survival of your business and not. As a business without an office, we don't qualify but that is not to say yours will be turned down.
This grant scheme is for businesses that may have fallen through the gaps for the original grant funding. The deadline is 14th June 2020 (this Sunday). To find out if your business fulfils the criteria go to the Dorset County Council website now. Applications after the deadline will not be accepted so hurry. They have had more than 1700 applications for quite a small pot of money but anything is better than nothing. It may mean being able to pay your mortgage for another month.
