Finance support for the craft sector in response to the Covid-19 crisis

In partnership with MAKE | Support we are contributing to a programme of resources, advice sessions, commissions and micro-grants to support the craft sector in Scotland during the Covid-19 crisis.

Drawing on our conversations with members and with colleagues in Scottish and UK-wide craft networks, we believe a priority is to support makers, whether self-employed or managing a portfolio of income, and small craft organisations to manage their finances & navigate the current, often overwhelming available financial support. And importantly, to do this in solidarity with others in the Scottish craft sector.

Here’s where we, our partners, and accountant John O’Neill of The O’Neill Partnership can help!

Read the Finance Guide for the Craft Sector during Covid-19 (updated weekly), which includes John’s 12 top tips for managing your finances during Covid-19 shared at the following online group finance advice sessions (6 and 14 May 2020 respectively):

With MAKE | Support, we contributed funds to support six micro-grants of £250 each for makers in Scotland via the second round of Visual Arts Scotland‘s (VAS) Emergency Art Workers Support Fund.

Visit MAKE | Support for further information about the full programme including the commissioned Craft Activity Guides.
