Updated 30.06.20: The last fortnight has seen many changes which will affect business owners in our region and across England. 

Lockdown restrictions have been relaxed and will be relaxed further in the next month, a £200 million fund has been unveiled to help innovative businesses, and rules have been changed to help pubs, restaurants and cafes to make use of outdoor space and reopen.

There have also been changes for school funding and information has been published on how businesses can apply for a moratorium on payments in order to explore restructuring and rescue plans.

With changes coming to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CRJS) from 1 July, get the latest information in our downloadable guide here.

The government have announced a £1.57 billion package to support arts, culture and heritage organisations. Find out more here.
