Welsh Government Fund already protected 75,000 jobs

REBECCA Evans MS, Member of the Senedd for Gower, has welcomed the news that the Welsh Government’s Economic Resilience Fund has already protected 75,000 jobs.

Rebecca Evans MS said: “The fund, which I launched in my role as Minister for Finance, has seen crucial grants provided to businesses to help them deal with the impacts of coronavirus. Almost £138 million has supported Micro and SME firms already, with more funding arriving with businesses by the day.

“The fund is proving essential in ensuring Welsh businesses get the financial support they need in these most difficult of times, ensuring Welsh businesses have the support needed to look towards a positive future.

“We have a large number of micro and small businesses in Gower and this fund is good news for our community.”

The ERF is part of the Welsh Government’s £1.7 billion package of support for business which is the most generous and comprehensive offer of help anywhere in the UK.
