Heather Lawson Fund

Heather Lawson Emergency Relief Fund

Craft NS has established The Heather Lawson Fund, an emergency fund for craftspeople in the province.  Primarily self-employed, many of Nova Scotia’s craftspeople have little or no financial cushion in the event of a sudden catastrophic illness or event.  This Fund will provide the temporary, short-term financial support needed to safeguard and sustain the careers of professional craftspeople who have suffered disabilities or experienced a career-threatening illness, accident, natural disaster, or personal catastrophe.
