Update for the self-employed

Good news for the self-employed if you have fixed costs for business premises.

Yesterday guidance for the Discretionary Grant Fund scheme was updated so that those who are eligible for, or in receipt of, the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS), are eligible for the Discretionary Grant Fund as well. Previously you could only apply for one or the other of these schemes, now you can do both!

Mansfield District CouncilĀ should be aware and able to process theseĀ applications. I understand they will be available from June 1st.
