COVID-19 restrictions in Kirklees tells you more about what this means.
Community and voluntary organisations, local charities and mutual aid groups are a vital part of our COVID-19 Community Response in local places across Kirklees. We have developed some new funding opportunities and range of support, in collaboration with local organisations. There are also funding opportunities from other organisations and Government support is available for charities.
Help for businesses and self-employed includes information about schemes which are also available for charities, including:
- the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
- claiming back Statutory Sick Pay paid to employees due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
- claiming a grant through the coronavirus (COVID-19) Self-employment Income Support Scheme.
Charitable Rate Relief and Small Business Rate Relief grants
Charities and amateur sports clubs usually aren't eligible for Small Business Rate Relief. This means that they can't apply for the Government's Small Business Grant Scheme.
Instead you should apply for Charitable Rates Relief for an 80% reduction on your rates bill.
