The Access Fund is designed to help registered Arts Award centres who would not otherwise be able to complete Arts Award due to a lack of funds. It is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England and was launched in 2005. It is now flourishing in arts centres, colleges and schools, community projects, libraries, galleries, local authorities, theatres, youth clubs and youth justice settings.
Applications from all registered Arts Award centres based in England are accepted but priority will be given to the following centres which are:
- working with disadvantaged young people
- taking part in Arts Award for the first time
- not receiving regular public funding
- using the grant to access an Arts Award Supporter.
