The Theatre Artists Fund 

This fund has been established  to provide emergency support for theatre workers and freelancers across the UK. It is for theatre professionals who are in need of urgent financial support due to the impact of Covid-19 on the theatre sector. 

The Theatre Artists Fund offers easy access individual grants of £1,000 for freelance professional theatre workers. Round 2 of the fund opened at 12pm on Thursday 27 August and will run until Thursday 10 September.

Help Musicians' Financial Hardship Funding

This fund supports those ineligible for government emergency safety nets or are unable to survive on what they receive. 

For those who are eligible, to the extent that funds allow, the charity will offer grant payments for the period 1 June to 31 October, to top up Universal Credit payments where relevant. Where an applicant does not qualify for Universal Credit but is still experiencing significant financial hardship, an assessment will be made based on individual circumstances.
