Freelancers whose main source of income comes from journalism can apply for these grants.
Rory Peck Trust is currently offering three assistance grants:
The Legal Fund helps journalists cover the costs and fees related to legal action taken against them because of their reporting.
The General Assistance Fund supports freelance journalists (and their families) when they need help due to crises directly related to their work.
The COVID-19 Hardship Fund provides practical and financial support to active freelance news journalists whose work and livelihoods have been directly affected by the new coronavirus.
The amount of assistance varies according to the circumstances of the applicant.
Journalists from Russia are encouraged to apply.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, but funds are limited.
