Response from Cabinet Secretary Fiona Hyslop regarding our concerns about the Creative Organisations and Cultural Venue Fund
Political responses and submissions - 7 October 2020
On the 8th September, we wrote to Fiona Hyslop MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Fair Work and Culture to outline member concerns around the newly announced Creative Organisations and Cultural Venue Fund.
This fund was set up to support organisations to avoid job losses and insolvency. However, many SCAN members felt that they did not meet the criteria to apply. Out of members that we surveyed, many felt that immediate insolvency was not the biggest issue, but survival after 31st March 2021.
