Domestic Support Fund

A new fund supporting the events industry recovery will provide financial support to not-for-profit organisations hosting domestic business events from 21st June to 17th December 2021.

The new Domestic Support Fund is designed to offer financial support to kick start the return of business events and to showcase that the UK is ready to meet again and has adapted to new ways of meeting in a Covid-19 secure environment.

Financial support will be based on number of delegates attending a live event, or the live component of a hybrid event. The event organisation can apply for £30 per delegate (cash incl. VAT) attending an event. Approved applications will receive financial support, after the event has taken place, and submission of evidence to support total number of attendees.

Offered as a ‘Small Amount of Financial Assistance’ grant scheme, this support is available for events from 100 to 500 people, to a maximum value of £15,000 support. In applying for this fund applications must be clear on why support is needed.

All activities need to take place within the dates 21st June to 17th December 2021 and evidence provided by 1st March 2022.
