Taxi financial support grant of £750 EXTENDED by East Renfrewshire Council to aid struggling cabbies



East Renfrewshire Council have extended the date by which taxi, private hire drivers and operators have to apply for a financial support grant made available to help those struggling in the trade since the outbreak of Covid-19.


The Taxi and Private Hire Driver and Operator Support Fund 2022 has now been extended to include those who did not originally receive funding through the Taxi and Private Hire Driver and Operator Support Fund launched on 7 June 2021, and any new drivers who have been working or available for work as a taxi or private hire vehicle driver since 9 December 2021.

Eligible drivers will receive a payment of £750.


For eligible operators, the amount an applicant receives will depend on the number of vehicles they have:

  • owner/operators with one vehicle - a single award of £750

  • owner/operators with 2 to 9 vehicles - a single award of £3,000

  • owner/operators with 10 to 49 vehicles - a single award of £7,000

  • owner/operators with 50 or more vehicles - a single award of £15,000

The fund will close at 5pm on Friday 25 March. Declarations submitted after that deadline will not be valid.
