Omicron business support fund


VisitScotland is opening a new fund to support businesses within the six sectors which were most affected by Omicron but were not eligible to receive any previous COVID-19 funding in 2021. 

This new Omicron Business Support Fund will be open to businesses operating in the following six sectors – coach, day tour operators, hostels, inbound tour operators, marine / outdoor and visitor attraction. These are the sectors which, after discussion with STERG, sector leads and the Scottish Government, were agreed to have been the most severely impacted by Omicron.

The fund opened on Wednesday 23 March and businesses which meet the eligibility criteria will be able to submit an application form. Applications will close at 5pm on Wednesday 30 March 2022.
