We understand artists and freelancers are getting hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, and we’re committed to giving you the support and resources to help navigate this challenging time.
As a small independent charity outside of public subsidy we are limited by capacity and resources, however all of us at Axisweb are determined and focused on what we can do for members. Here are a few things we are doing to help those who are most vulnerable:
Axisweb Hardship Fund
Any member facing financial hardship and who are unable to work, disabled, a carer, on low income or freelance is eligible to apply.
We won’t ask you to explain why, but ask that you only apply if you need money.
We have initially made available a fund of £5,000. Each week for five weeks we will distribute 10 x £100 awards.
Three Months Subscription for Free
For any member experiencing financial difficulty and whose Axisweb Membership is due for renewal in the next three months - do get in touch. We want you to continue enjoying the benefits of membership, and to ensure you do we will give you Three Months Free.
Need Legal Advice?
Axisweb Members have access to a free legal helpline. So if you need guidance on your contract rights, employment or discrimination. The number can be found in your membership documentation or by emailing [email protected]
