Help support authors facing financial hardship due to the health crisis

Since March 2020, we have paid out over £1.4 million in hardship grants through the Authors’ Contingency Fund to authors in financial need.

As the health crisis continues to impact author incomes and demand for grants continues, our emergency funds are running out.

We need your help if we are to keep offering these grants throughout the health crisis and beyond.

The Authors’ Contingency Fund is a registered charity number 212406.
