Hardship Fund for Creative Freelancers
Deadline: 31 Dec 2020
To support creative freelancers working in Scotland who are experiencing immediate financial hardship due to the loss of income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funds offer a one-off monetary contribution to those who are most deeply impacted and disadvantaged by the cancellation of work as a result of the emergency situation.
We will trust that those who request these funds are in need of emergency funding at this time. We strongly encourage people to fully consider their needs before making a request to this programme. Funds are finite and we and our partners expect a high level of demand. It is vital that we are able to support those who have the most urgent needs at this time.
Whilst there are no deadlines for this programme, the nature of this fund is that it will only remain open whilst budget remains available. We realise however that not everyone will be able to respond to this opportunity immediately, and therefore we and our partners will hold back a proportion of the budget so that we can support requests that take a little more time to reach us. But we do suggest you apply as soon as possible.
Who can apply?
These funds are to support freelance creative professionals working in the arts and creative sector in Scotland who are experiencing immediate financial difficulty due to the loss of income as a result of COVID-19.
These roles include those whose work has direct creative outcomes as well as those in supporting roles whose work directly supports the making and presentation of creative work.
All applicants must be based in Scotland and must be able to demonstrate they were working and making income as a freelance creative professional before lockdown began (in March 2020).
