For Charities

The Trust welcomes applications from registered charities which care for professional creative artists from many disciplines, and will consider making block grants to assist those charities in providing temporary board and accommodation to their beneficiaries for holidays, convalescences or quiet working time. The notes below are intended to give more information and advice on this.  For further information, please contact the Secretary by email or post.

The Trust also accepts applications from other arts organisations (which are not registered charities) on behalf of their members, but in these cases the Trust will require the submission of more detail both about the organisation and its specific application before considering the suitability of the request.

In the case of individual artists, or groups of artists who are planning some work or collaboration, please refer to the notes under the Artists tab.
