Wales Cultural Recovery Fund Freelancer Grant Scheme (Torfaen)

The Welsh Government Wales Cultural Recovery Fund Freelancer Grant Scheme aims to provide eligible applicants with a grant of £2,500 each.  Each local authority area has been allocated a set proportion of the budget – Torfaen County Borough Council has been allocated £222,500 to support 89 applications.

 Support is being made available to assist freelancer professionals whose work has direct creative/cultural outcomes, and who work in the four key sub sectors: 

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

Applicants will also be eligible to apply if they are employed part-time and also have a freelance professional creative practice.

Freelancers that received previous support from either the Government Job Retention Scheme and Self-employment Income Support Scheme and are experiencing financial challenges are still eligible to apply for this fund.

 Further details will be available in due course at https://businesswales.gov.wales/coronavirus-advice/ and https://www.southwalesbusiness.co.uk/en/home.aspx

 The Wales Cultural Recovery Fund Freelancer Grant Scheme will open on Monday 5 October.
