Grants and Support for Businesses – Wealden District Council – Wealden District Council

Further £2.6 million of support for Wealden businessesiscretionary Business Relief


Following the Government’s announcement that support will be offered to businesses affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, Wealden District Council are now able to accept applications for grant funding.

A dedicated crisis fund of £47 million is available to support Wealden businesses. Grants of up to £25,000 are available to those in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors. Any small business that already pays little or no business rates because of Small Business Rate Relief (SBRR), Rural Rate Relief (RRR) and Tapered Relief, is eligible to apply for a one-off payment of £10,000.

An application form is now available for completion on the Wealden website:

Cllr Bob Standley, Leader and Portfolio Holder for Governance and Finance said: “During these uncertain times it is vital that we do all we can to support the local economy and the livelihoods of our residents. Business rates for many Wealden businesses have already been suspended for the 2020-21 tax year, and we hope that this additional support will go some way to help prevent closures and redundancies. We urge as many eligible businesses as possible to apply for this one-off grant funding to help support and secure their future in the aftermath of Coronavirus.”

More information on advice and support for businesses during the pandemic is available on the COVID-19 section of our website:

Action in rural Sussex (AirS) exists to help support people across rural Sussex and during this challenging time, our support to rural communities remains paramount.  We are determined to do all we can to continue working with you and to have as much positive impact through this period of uncertainty as we can. In order to do this there are a number of steps we are taking immediately to protect our team, whilst still maintaining our commitment to the services we offer.

These include:

  • Manned mainline telephone number


  • Our commitment to advising village halls & community buildings

We understand that this is a very confusing time for village halls and community buildings as there has not yet been clear guidance from the Government as to the closure of public buildings such as these.  Until some such directive is issued halls can  choose to remain open if they wish. Each individual management committee must decide what to do using the information provided by Public Health England.

We will of course continue to update and advise our village hall subscribers as and when we have the information to do so.

  • Supporting community groups

Due to Government guidelines on social distancing, the AirS team will all now be working from home as much as possible. However, in order to continue with our core services, we are already providing remote support, therefore communications will take place via telephone, video call, e-mail and on-line meeting software. We are also setting up new communication methods for community groups and will be publicising these developments in the coming days.

  • Web based support

We will endeavour to support our communities with advice and guidance via our website  the information we are being provided with is ever-changing, therefore please do keep monitoring the website for updates.

We would like to reassure you that despite the current ever changing situation we are working hard to ensure that we continue to support our communities at the time you need it most.

Dear Friends,

Over the last week, it feels that the world has changed, almost beyond recognition. Many charities are very worried about whether they will survive. All youth groups, arts activities, social clubs etc. have just stopped. Groups which depend on membership, sales or event income are worried they will have to close, as are other charities that need to pay ongoing costs like staff or rent.

On the other hand there are some seriously impressive people out there who are just getting organised and are determined that no-one will get left behind. The Food Partnership in Brighton & Hove are coordinating 17 foodbanks, Fareshare trust and community centres around the city to distribute food to every neighbourhood in the city for those who need it.

Befriending charities are moving to telephone or online befriending, taking referrals from community organisations that can no longer meet, and training vast numbers of new volunteers to respond to the immediate need.

Across the county there are many examples like these, of charities rolling their sleeves up and finding creative ways to do the impossible. They are having to incur new costs for computers, phones, online services or for the most basic things like food and medicine for vulnerable people.

The community needs support now to sustain the amazing effort that is being made to address this emergency and support the most vulnerable, but it will also need help in the longer term to make sure that these vital local charities survive the economic shock of the next few months and are there to respond to the long term needs of our communities.

As a result of all this, on Friday we launched a new Sussex Crisis Fund to help local communities affected by the coronavirus. Thanks to American Express and the Argus Appeal, we have £100,000 to start the fund, but we already have 126 applications, so we urgently need more donations to help meet the demand.

I know that many people will be navigating their own financial difficulties. But if you are in a position to do so, please do make a donation to the new Sussex Crisis Fund. You can:

I said at the beginning that so many things have changed. What has not changed is people’s capacity for compassion and desire to help those less fortunate. I hope you can help us to support the amazing work that is happening in our communities today to make sure the most vulnerable stay safe in this crisis.

If you were able to help I would be so grateful.

With many thanks and stay well

Kevin Richmond

Chief Executive

Sussex Community Foundation,
