Rory Peck Trust COVID-19 Hardship Fund reopens
After having to close for a while having been completely overwhelmed with applications for support, the Rory Peck COVID-19 Hardship Fund has been able to open again.
About the fund
In response to the devastating impact of the pandemic, the Rory Peck Trust has created a dedicated fund to provide practical and financial support to active freelance news journalists whose work and livelihoods have been directly affected by COVID-19.
Successful applicants will receive a single grant of between £200–£900 to contribute to subsistence (home/food) costs for them and their dependents.
Am I eligible for a grant?
Are you a professional freelance news journalist whose only source of income is from journalism? If so, then you may be eligible for a grant from the COVID-19 Hardship Fund.
