The Scottish Government has invested £25million in the new Fund, which opens on Thursday 28 January and runs until the fund is fully allocated.
The fund aims to help as many businesses as possible operating in the Scottish wedding industry – and their supply chain - to survive the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and then restart once restrictions ease, thus protecting jobs.
The Scottish Wedding Industry Fund is open to eligible businesses whose main income comes from the wedding sector, offering grants of between £5,000 and £25,000 depending on turnover. The fund is being provided by the Scottish Government and administered by a partnership of Scottish Enterprise, South of Scotland Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
At this extremely challenging time, the funding will be distributed in the order applications are received to ensure those businesses eligible for support are provided with it as efficiently as possible.
