Business Recovery, Support, Training and Grants

Financial Support for Your Business

Croydon Council is aware that many local businesses are continuing to experience financial difficulties as we come out of lockdown. To support this, all Croydon businesses who have previously received a Covid-19 grant will receive a top-up of up to £2,000 to support recovery.

There is no need to apply or contact the Council as they already have your details, and you will receive payment into the bank account you have provided details of.
