This new fund is not an emergency hardship fund – for details of emergency hardships funds see our list – but aims to assist songwriters and composers complete planned musical activities despite the huge barriers presented by COVID-19.

Musicians based in the UK who play an active role in the creation of new music are eligible, and the first round of applications opens on Monday 6 April.

For full details on the fund, see PRS Foundation’s website.
