Further details

Local Authorities

We are aware of a number of clubs that have received the £10,000 grant that has been made available to businesses eligible for Small Business Rates Relief with a rateable value of £12,000 or less. However there does seem to be some inconsistency across Wales, and therefore sadly we are also aware of a number of clubs that have been found to be ineligible.  With that in mind, please let us know how you have got on by either getting in contact with your local Regional Club Development Officer .

Specific information about the SBRR Grant can be found here
