A collective voice for literature and languages in Scotland

Hardship Fund for Creative Freelancers opens on Mon 26 Oct

The Hardship Fund is 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.

It’s for freelance professionals in Scotland whose work has direct creative outcomes. This can include (but is not limited to) a writer or maker of poetry, prose or fiction, a playwright, a visual artist, actor or theatre-maker, a comedian, dancer, musician, craft-maker or designer. You will derive a significant proportion of your income from your role in creating or producing original artistic, creative or design material.

  • The fund offers a one-off monetary contribution of between £500 – £2000
  • If you have specific access needs, you can request more than this
  • No deadlines – the fund will only stay open for as long as the funds are available with each of the delivery partners
  • Applicants must first register on the Creative Scotland online application portal which opens at noon on Mon 26 Oct 2020 on the Hardship Fund page
  • Then you will be directed to the funding delivery partner to complete your application
  • The Society of Authors is the delivery partner distributing £600k for Scotland’s writers, illustrators and translators.
