We cannot consider an application for a Hardship Relief Grant until all statutory sources of funding have been considered and tried.
Hardship Relief Grants are subject to application and a maximum threshold of £500 (subject to availability), and designed to be a one off source of personal financial support. Once you have reached the maximum threshold we are unable to offer more funds.
Hardship Relief Grants cannot be offered as a regular source of income and support.
Our weekly grocery shops and child care pledges are only available in the form of digital e-vouchers and this support cannot be substituted for an alternative cash payment.
For any talking therapy pledges we will ask your therapist to invoice EventWell® directly and we will liaise and send the funds directly to them.
Pledge applications are limited to maximum one pledge per person per week.
The Pledges in our programme are currently only available to event professionals and creatives based in the UK, if you are based outside of the UK please email our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on how we may be able to support you.
We also understand how stigmatising and challenging it can be to ask and reach out for help. Please rest assured that all conversations, messages or emails with EventWell are confidential and will never be made public or available to any third parties. As a charitable organisation and social enterprise we have a duty of care to our beneficiaries and this is of upmost importance to us.
