I am self-employed and unable to work due to coronavirus. Is there support available?
You may be able to claim a grant through the government’s Self-employment Income Support Scheme. For more information see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-a-grant-through-the-coronavirus-covid-19-self-employment-income-support-scheme.
If you are eligible you can also make a claim for Universal Credit while you wait for the grant.
Small and medium-sized businesses affected by coronavirus can also access finance of up to £5million from the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.
