In particular, it supports high quality arts-based learning activities that bring about and evidence positive and sustained change in one or more of six priority areas:
- Young people’s academic achievements
- Young people’s achievements and progression within one or more artforms
- Young people’s soft-skills and or well-being, social, moral and or cultural development
- Young people’s access to, and participation in, arts-based learning activities
- Whole school culture, integration, cohesion and/or community relationships
- Staff knowledge, confidence and skills in delivering arts-based learning activities
Three types of grant are available under this fund to support work at different stages of development:
Arts-based Learning ‘explore and test’ grants – offering funding for up to two years to help test new approaches or gather evidence for the first time about approaches that have been used before.
Arts-based Learning ‘more and better’ grants – offering longer, larger grants to help increase the impact, effectiveness, learning and legacy of work which has already shown significant promise or positive impact.
Ideas and Pioneers grants – offering funding for up to 18 months to help develop unusual or radical ideas in their early stages.
Arts by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation #586781
The Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people throughout the UK by supporting work that focuses on the arts, children and young people, the environment, food and social change. Applicants should apply for the amount that they need. The Foundation does not set limits and makes grants across a fairly wide spectrum of sizes. However, the Foundation rarely makes grants that are smaller than £5,000 and it makes only a small number of grants in excess of £500,000. It is unusual for the Foundation to give a grant of this size or larger to an organisation with which it does not already have a relationship. Funding is available for core or project costs, and this includes staff salaries and overheads.
Ideas and Pioneers Fund by Paul Hamlyn Foundation #586780
Funding to support people with unusual or radical ideas to improve the life chances and opportunities of people in the UK. Grants of up to £10,000 (and up to £15,000 in exceptional circumstances) are available to individuals, partnerships or small organisations.
This fund supports people who have an idea in its early stages of development. They will consider funding work to enable you to develop the idea from concept to set-up: this may include problem definition and analysis, scoping, exploratory work, and prototyping.
Access and Participation Fund by Paul Hamlyn Foundation #586779
Grants are available to support organisations to test, implement and develop ambitious plans to widen access to and deepen participation in the arts. The Access and Participation Fund offers two levels of funding:

More and Better grants of up to £600,000 for up to four years.
Funding is intended to increase the impact and effectiveness of work which has already shown promise or positive impact.
