The eligibility criteria for this grant differ to the first rounds of Freelancer Support. Please familiarise yourself with the attached guidance prior to applying.

Please note we are unable to answer enquiries prior to the launch of the grant, for all general enquiries please speak to Business Wales who can offer tailored business advice.

The purpose of the grant is to support freelancers who continue to face financial challenges in the period from April 2021 to September 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Support is available to assist freelancer professionals whose work has direct creative/cultural outcomes, who work in the five key sub sectors of

  • the arts
  • creative industries
  • arts and heritage
  • events
  • culture and heritage

Our priority for this round is helping those who remain affected by the COVID – 19 outbreak (musicians/those working in events, theatre etc).

Freelancers from the wedding and events industries are eligible to apply in this round.

This funding is specifically for creative/cultural subsectors and roles that have been forced to cease work and/or face difficultly restarting because of the impact of COVID-19 restrictions. Those in roles that have been able to continue at previous or near previous levels of activity (e.g. architects, graphic designers, games designers etc.) with or without support should not apply.

“A freelancer can be defined as someone who is commissioned to produce work or provide a service for a client, on a one off or short term contractual basis.”

“A freelancer is not someone who produces goods and then takes them to a market place (retail/wholesale outlet of any kind), this person is considered a producer for retail.”
