Creative Scotland launches £15m cultural organisations fund

10 September 2020

Creative Scotland has launched the guidance for the Culture Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund. The fund's primary aim is to protect jobs and to support the sustainability of organisations threatened by insolvency in the short to medium term. We are strongly encouraging members to take a look to see if you are eligible and if so, apply. Please note that funds are not available under this scheme for those companies who have received PERF funding.

The total budget for this fund is £15m. The funding comes from the Scottish Government.

Applicants can apply for between £10k and £150k and up to £250k on an exceptional basis.

Applications should be made through Creative Scotland's online application portal. A link to the application portal will be published on Creative Scotland's website at 12 noon on 17 September.
