Potential Covid-19 restriction funding opportunities

Details of funding that may be available if your Group had returned to face-to-face Scouting prior to the current lockdown in England.

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) supports businesses including Scout Groups that were open as usual, providing services in person to customers (young people) from their Scouting premises, but which were then required to close due to lockdown restrictions imposed by government. It is for Scout Groups that pay business rates on their premises (even if this is discounted to nil).

Local councils may at their discretion also provide funding for businesses including Scout Groups that don’t pay business rates these are called Additional Restrictions Grants.

Here is some more information.
