Business Ventilation Fund

 A £25 million fund to improve ventilation in business premises and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission is now open for applications.

Small and medium-sized will be able to claim back costs of up to £2,500 to undertake work such as the installation of carbon dioxide monitors and remedial improvement work to windows and vents.

Support will initially target high-risk settings where people come into close contact, such as restaurants, bars and gyms.

Businesses fill in a self-assessment form to receive advice on improving their current ventilation systems and identify if they are eligible for financial support from their local authority.

Effective ventilation is a key public health measure to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading and is of increasing importance during autumn and winter as people spend more time indoors.

The total funding package is worth £25 million, and was announced by the First Minister in September 2021

Further details of the grants are available here.
