Although the UK government plans to launch a second round of SEISS grants in August to extend support to self employed workers during Covid-19, there are still a large number of self employed people falling through the cracks of eligibility for these grants. 

The Musicians' Union has reported that 45% of UK musicians are not currently covered by SEISS, and is urging that we Write to Rishi, as well as local MPs to apply pressure to ensure that there is #NoCreativeLeftBehind

Please take a look at the link below which contains more detail in what the government needs to address so musicians are fully supported, plus template letters you can send.
