Funding is for projects that make a real and ongoing difference to people’s lives in the UK. The Trustees state that for grant purposes:
• Real means an appreciable and significant difference. For example, something that affects one person’s life to a great extent, possibly leading to a significantly improved probability that the person will be involved in the Arts on an ongoing basis (ie, by having a career in the Arts) and something that affects many people’s lives, (ie, through improved access to the Arts).
• Difference implies that the funding award contributes to something that would not otherwise happen, without the making of such awards. This might (but need not necessarily) include the overcoming of special difficulties/obstacles.
Funding is available to not-for-profit organisations, including charities, companies and community trusts, for projects in the areas of culture and the arts that make a
real and ongoing difference to people’s lives in the UK.
Funding is at the discretion of the Trustees.
