Useful Links to Help You During Covid-19

Rather than repeat what is available on lots of websites, we’ve just put together a short list of places where help and information can be found, in terms of self-employment support etc.

  • Information from Creative Scotland
    Includes news about their repurposed Open Fund, a Bridging Bursary, what they’re doing at government level on behalf of the arts, and an A to Z of funding & resources (scroll down to near the bottom of their web page).
  • A Maker’s Guide to Covid-19 from Craft Scotland
    Plenty of useful links including details of HMRC’s help for self-employed workers, micro & small businesses‘ update, guidance for Studio holders, Employers & Workshop leaders, and much more. While this is primarily aimed at makers, it has a much wider relevance too.
  • A-N
    A-N’s post (updated regularly) with support and advice from across the arts sector, plus wider government and NHS guidance.
