Freelancers working in Wales’ creative sectors will be able to apply for a further round of financial support from today.

The new round of funding from the Cultural Recovery Fund will mean that freelancers already supported will receive an additional £2,500 to help them through this extended period of reduced activity.

The Freelancer Fund will open for applications at 12 midday today,  Monday 17 May 2021.

The fund supports freelancers who work in the following sectors:

  • The Arts
  • Creative Industries
  • Arts and Heritage
  • Events
  • Culture and Heritage

The fund will also support freelancers who work in events that have been significantly impacted by the pandemic, including those working in weddings and corporate events, but not sport events.

All applications are considered on an individual basis and payment of the grant is at the “absolute discretion” of the Local Authority who administers the fund.

For further information, to check your eligibility and apply visit Business Wales COVID-19 support for business at 12 midday on Monday 17 May 2021.
