EALING council is now inviting Ealing businesses to apply for a range of grants from a pot of £6.2m. Three grant schemes are targeted at businesses who have been severely impacted by the downturn in the aviation sector and its vast network of supply chain businesses, the creative, digital and cultural economy and a covid hardship scheme. Unlike previous grants, they are now open to home-based businesses, freelancers, self-employed individuals, sole traders and limited company directors that we know comprise a huge part of our economy and continue to suffer hardship due to restrictions. Read more about the schemes and find a link to the application page here
Also as of the 1st March, Ealing goes live on the consultation of the council’s draft plan for economic recovery and renewal – aka ‘the Greenprint’. This plan was officially launched by our Leader Cllr Bell back in early December, however in case you missed it you can read here and please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively please take 10mins to fill out the survey which is linked on the grant webpage.
