Don’t miss out on a Restart grant for your business

There are still around 140 businesses in Wigan borough who are believed to be eligible for Restart Grant funding that are yet to receive their award. Could that be you?

Over recent weeks, the council has distributed more than £13m funding to over 2,000 businesses in the borough to support them to re-open following easement of the Covid-19 restrictions.

A national criteria has been set meaning the council must gather information from businesses before paying, and all eligible businesses we have information for have been contacted directly.

However, there is a small pocket of businesses across the borough who have not yet taken up the funding. So, please check your email inboxes, including your junk folders and get in touch with the council asap.

Or, if you own a local business and believe you’re eligible but haven’t been contacted, please email
businessrates@wigan.gov.uk as soon as possible.

You can also check your eligibility on the Government’s website.
