Coronavirus (Covid 19) Taxi and Private Hire Driver Support Fund - Self Declaration Form
The Scottish Government recognises the financial challenges facing Taxi Drivers and Operators as a result of the rapid spread of the Omicron variant which has caused a significant reduction in the demand for taxis and private hire vehicles as a result of measures introduced to control the spread.
In recognition of these challenges, Ministers have earmarked £28 million specifically to provide financial support to the taxi sector for fixed costs. Originally only those Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle drivers who previously received a grant under the Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Driver Support Fund 2021 were eligible to apply. This is now open to new drivers and those who did not apply for previous grant support in 2021. All are now eligible to receive a one-off grant of £750 from their local authority.
This fund is being administered by Local Authorities, and on behalf of Argyll and Bute Council I am pleased to confirm you may be eligible for financial support if you have not already received a grant award through the Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Driver and Operator Support Fund 2021/2022. To verify your eligibility for support and to process payment we require you to complete and return the declaration below including supporting information where that is requested.
Please ensure that you take the time to complete your self-declaration form correctly and that you double-check that the information you have provided is accurate before submitting.
