A new fund to support jewellers, silversmiths & people in the trade

Now closed





Updated 5 May: the last round of applications closed today. We will let you know if there is another chance to apply, but this is not probable.

From the Goldsmiths' Company:
Since the start of the Coronavirus crisis, we have been listening to what our wider community of jewellers, silversmiths and those working in the allied industries have been saying about the challenges they face.

Behind the scenes, the Goldsmiths' Company has been working with the Charity (the Goldsmiths’ Company Charity) to set up a new Fund – The Goldsmiths’ COVID-19 Fund – to provide support to those in our trade that need it most, whether they are a member of the Goldsmiths’ Company or not.

From the end of April 2020, eligible members of the jewellery, silversmithing and allied industries who are self-employed, sole traders or running micro-businesses of five employees or fewer in the UK and are in financial difficulty will be able to apply online for funds in the form of a grant or loan.

The third round of applications closed on Tuesday 5th May.
