Welsh hospitality businesses eligible for reopening fund

Welsh hospitality businesses will be able to apply for funding of up to £25,000 to help with the cost of reopening their doors from 17th May.

Up to six people from six different households will be able to meet inside in restaurants, pubs and bars from Monday. First Minister Mark Drakeford also announced a £200m funding package to support businesses affected by the pandemic to meet costs through to the end of June.

Hospitality and leisure businesses, supply chain firms, nightclubs, events and conference venues in Wales will all be eligible to receive between £2,500 and £25,000.

Drakeford said: “We know the restrictions have helped to keep us all safe but they have had a big impact on Welsh businesses, which is why we are making more funding available to support firms and safeguard jobs.”

An eligibility checker will open on the Business Wales website at midday on 17th May to allow businesses to find out their support entitlement and how to apply. Funding will be calculated based on the size of the business and the type of restrictions they are under.
