Our supporters

We are a Sector Support Organisation for Arts Council England, supported using public funding.

Our Fair Access Sector Support programmes in Northern Ireland and Scotland are made possible thanks to funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s and Creative Scotland’s National Lottery funds.


Our Cultural Ambition programme in Wales is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Welsh Government’s Museums, Archives and Libraries Division.

We work in close collaboration with organisations and employers across the creative and cultural sectors, other Sector Skills Councils, industry bodies, training providers and educators, research and policy teams, Non Departmental Public Bodies and Government Departments including the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the Department for Education (DofE), the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), and equivalent departments of the Devolved Administrations, to shape and deliver our work.
