Culture Recovery Fund: Grants Programme

12 Aug 2020

Cultural organisations (both profit and not for profit) based in England, who were financially stable before Covid-19 but are now at imminent risk of failure, can now access financial support.

This grants programme is part of the Government’s £1.57 billion package to protect the UK’s culture and heritage sectors from the economic impacts of Covid-19. This fund will support cultural organisations.

This fund is to enable cultural organisations that have been affected by the Covid-19 crisis to stay afloat, providing them with support over a 6-month period to ensure that by 31 March 2021 they can reopen, either fully or partially, or operating on a sustainable, cost-efficient basis until they are able to reopen at a later date.

The kinds of organisations that are eligible to apply include:

  • Limited companies registered at Companies House

  • Community interest companies (CICs) registered with the CIC regulator

  • Charitable incorporated organisations (CIOs) registered with the Charity Commission

  • Charitable companies or charitable trusts registered with the Charity Commission

  • Limited liability partnerships registered at Companies House

  • Partnerships established under a partnership deed/ agreement

  • Community benefit and co-operative societies registered with the Financial Conduct Authority

  • Royal Charter bodies

  • Statutory bodies and other public bodies including Universities and museums who run or maintain cultural services
