The Newly Self-Employed Hardship Fund, which paid out more than £11 million in vital support last year, has re-opened for a second round.

The scheme offers a one-off £4,000 payment for those whose status as being newly self-employed makes them ineligible for the UK Government’s Coronavirus (Covid-19) Self-employment Income Support Scheme.

If you received funding through the first round of the Newly Self-Employed Hardship Fund launched in April 2020, you are still able to apply for support. This is a follow-on from that scheme and recognises the need for further help with living costs.

Find out more and apply for support from the Newly Self-Employed Hardship Fund.

COVID-19 advice and funding information is available via the Scottish Government’s Find Business Support website.
