New grants available for South Norfolk and Broadland businesses
New business grants from £2,000 to £20,000 are available to support large, small and micro businesses from South Norfolk and Broadland District Councils through the second phase of its discretionary business grant.
The Councils welcome applications from South Norfolk and Broadland businesses of any size, whether home based or based in business premises, business rated or not rated, self-employed or employing staff. They are particularly keen to hear from businesses that have so far been unable to receive any COVID-19 financial support.
To qualify for the Additional Restrictions Grant, businesses must have experienced a loss of income (turnover) of at least 20% or £40,000 and fall into one of the following categories:
- A rated business that did not qualify for Local Restrictions Support Grant payments during national lockdowns or local restrictions
- A business that has so far been unable to receive any COVID-19 financial support – including businesses with premises which are not business-rated, or without its own business rating
- A business that employs 10 or more full-time equivalent employees and wishes to request a top-up to a previous Local Restrictions Support Grant award
Any business that needs support is encouraged to get in touch to find out what funding they may be eligible for. Please share with your business networks and fellow business owners.

Corvid-19 and malicious communications
In this time of national emergency, we’re more vulnerable to cyber-crime and phishing attacks through phone calls, texts, social media and email. These attacks are trying to access anything from identity information to bank/credit card details. You may have robust security in place but please remain vigilant.
If you receive any unsolicited communications asking for bank/credit card details or containing weblinks/attachments, please DO NOT make contact or click on/open items – just delete.
Door Step Scam
Sadly we have been informed that In Norfolk people purporting to be from the British Red Cross are knocking on the doors of the elderly and vulnerable, taking their money for shopping and not returning. People are also going into peoples homes with testing kits that don’t exist. Please be mindful of this if you work or know vulnerable or older people and ask them to be vigilant regarding visitors offering help and to never offer card details or money.
