After almost 900 responses to their recent survey, it was made clear that many musicians are still struggling to make ends meet due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Arts Council England have given a combined fund of £650k, which has in turn offered at least £1m to the Help Musicians’ Hardship Fund 2022.
Those eligible will receive at least a one off payment of £250, with higher amounts available to those in more challenging financial situations.
Musicians can apply for hardship funding from Monday 31 January.
