Derbyshire County Council and Nottinghamshire County Council have announced their support for residents and businesses affected by recent flooding. Both councils are offering emergency payments of up to £300 for small businesses who have been affected by the floods.
This funding is available following assessment of need and all applications will be considered on a case by case basis.
Nottinghamshire County Council are also able to offer eligible residents who were evacuated or whose homes were flooded a one-off payment of £120.
The East Midlands Chamber of Commerce are working with partners to be able to support and offer local businesses who have been affected by the recent flooding 1 years free membership.
“The impact of flooding will be felt for some time and by offering free year-long Chamber membership, those affected can be sure that the support available to help them recover and thrive will be available short, mid and long-term.
I would urge businesses in the affected areas to fully explore the extensive level of support available to them – whatever challenges they are currently facing.”
David Pearson, Director of Partnerships

Everyone is unique and will respond differently, but typical reactions can include disbelief, stress, nervousness, confusion, trouble sleeping, worry, low mood, irritability and anger.
