Spend Local Card Scheme Extended

🚨 Update on Spend Local Cards 🚨

We are aware that a number of people got their cards late and weren’t able to spend them.

Therefore these card holders will be able to use their cards from 9am on Friday 24 December until 11.59pm on Friday 7 January. Those who are affected will be contacted directly by the department.

The Department has become aware of a technical issue affecting 2,010 cards on the final weekend of the scheme. The vast majority of these cards had less than £5 outstanding balance and 300 cards did have the full balance remaining. It is unfortunate that these applicants were not able to support their local businesses, and the Department will also be in contact with these applicants to let them know they can also use their card from Friday 24 December until Friday 7 January 2022.

ENDS
