£25m Ventilation fund due in November


Financial support will soon be available to help businesses make necessary adjustments to improve ventilation within their premises, such as installing carbon dioxide monitors or alterations to windows and vents.  The Scottish Government’s COVID-19 Ventilation Fund will be available from November.

The eligibility criteria will be published in the coming weeks and is aimed at small to medium-sized businesses in Scotland where people come into close proximity, such as in the hospitality and leisure sectors.

The fund will provide both grants and advice to help companies undertake work to improve ventilation and will include small to medium-scale improvement work, including reopening of windows and vents, airbricks, air cleaners as well as support for installation of environmental/CO2 monitoring to assess general ventilation and identify and focus on areas of poor ventilation.
