Freelancers and those who work within radio and podcasting can apply for relief through the The Audio and Radio Emergency Fund.

The fund has been created to help those in the radio and audio sector who are facing hardship because of the coronavirus crisis.

The urgent need to provide support for freelancers and other individuals who are the lifeblood of radio, podcasts, and audiobooks, has brought together The Radio Academy, AudioUK, the BBC, Audible, ReelWorld and Folder Media to create the new fund.

The scheme will give grants of up to £1,000 to individuals who need extra support during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as those in hardship who are receiving no government assistance; people who need help with radio or audio development projects, or those who need new equipment or software.

Applications for the 7th round of funding are open until 29th July.
