One to One Support

  • Proof Reading Support
We offer proof reading support to arts and culture workers in need of assistance with benefit and funding applications. We know this is of particular urgency during the current challenges during the Covid-19 crisis.
If you wish to seek support in this area, please contact us at specifying your name, contact number and what you are working on and the timeframe involved. We shall endeavour to pair you with an expert here at QMUL who will proof read your application and act as a sounding board. They will be able to offer you three hours of mentoring support with your application.
If you are writing a funding application see also our Funding Application Top Tips document written by Network on our Tool Kit page.
  • Universal Credit Application Support

In collaboration with the Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre, we offer assistance in completing an application for Universal Credit. To use this service please contact us at, sending your name and contact number and specifying that you would like support to apply for Universal Credit. 

If you have already sought Universal Credit or other government funding as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, and feel that you have not been awarded what you expected to get, please do get in touch.  We may be able to review your circumstances and the decision that has been made, to see whether any other avenues are available to you.
