The Scottish Government’s Business Ventilation Fund is now open to applications.  It aims to help businesses improve ventilation and air quality on their premises to help reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission. Support will target high-risk settings where people come into close proximity, such as hospitality and leisure sectors.

The fund will allow businesses to claim back costs of up to £2500 to improve ventilation.

Applications will be accepted until Thursday 31 March 2022 or until the fund runs out, whichever comes first.
