Arts Council National Lottery Projects Grants


This grants programme is intended to help the Arts Council achieve its mission of ‘Great art and culture for everyone’. It also provides a means to support a broad range of not-for-profit projects that create and sustain quality work and help people across England to engage with arts and culture.

The programme supports development by allowing artists, cultural practitioners and organisations to work in new ways and to get their work out to new audiences.

All organisations need to have a bank account in the organisation’s name, with two signatories.

The R. W. Mann Trust

The Trust has a preference for supporting organisations in the North Tyneside, South East Northumberland and in the East Newcastle areas. In certain circumstances we may assist those operating in the wider Tyne, Wear, Durham and Northumberland areas if we consider that they offer exceptional added value to their communities or are particularly innovative. Support to national organisations will only be given where there is a specific project in the area in which we operate.

Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust

The Charity's origins go directly back to Bishop Vesey, a native of Sutton Coldfield who persuaded Henry VIII to grant a Charter in 1528 establishing a Warden and Society (Corporation) to govern the town. In 1886, the town became a Borough and Sutton Coldfield Charities was set up, taking over the various Corporation Charities within one body. This operated alongside the Council.
