Covid-19 Grant Support 

In April 2020, the Scottish Government made available additional grant funding for vulnerable Scottish SMEs which are vital to economies and for tourism, hospitality and creative industry businesses experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19.

At SOSE, we administered over £12m of this funding to almost 300 businesses across Dumfries and Galloway and the Borders. Many of the businesses would not have survived without this vital support.
