The Welcome Visitor Project is working closely with key partners, to support tourism businesses during Covid 19.
We will do this by providing tourism industry information updates from Visit England/ Visit Britain, Visit Scotland, Northumberland Tourism and Northumberland County Council.
We will also share details of business training and funding opportunities through NBSL and Business Northumberland.
Below you will find links to our key partners, for news updates.

Good News Stories.
Hot off the press:
New Government guidance is now available on two coronavirus funding schemes – the Local Restrictions Support Grants (LRSG (Closed) Addendum) and the Closed Business Lockdown Payment.
Tourism and hospitality venues in England that have been required to close, as well as businesses that operate primarily as an in-person venue, but which have been forced to close those services and provide a takeaway-only service instead may be eligible for one or both of these grants. Eligible businesses must occupy property on which they pay business rates and be the ratepayer.
