Sefton Council is currently distributing thousands of pounds in grant funding to support taxi drivers who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
From Monday, 30 November over 4,000 taxi drivers licensed in Sefton, and who live in the Liverpool City Region, each became eligible for a £100 support grant.
Drivers who are eligible will receive a letter sent to their home address containing details of how to access the grant.
Sefton Council has ensured a dedicated team will be on hand to support all applicants through the claims process. Once approved, the drivers will receive their grant within 5 working days.
Those drivers who do not meet the criteria for this grant are able to access other support schemes which offer financial aid. Check your local authority for their support offer.
