Creating a future

Creative Future supports under-represented artists and writers facing exclusion and lack of access to mainstream arts opportunities, due to mental health issues, disability, health, identity or other social circumstance.

They’re one of five organisations funded by the Local Sustainability Fund whom we’ve supported to improve and strengthen their organisation. We’ve acted as Creative Future’s change adviser, and helped them to achieve the first objective of their change plan to review their staffing structure.

We matched Creative Future with one of our consultants, who conducted an extensive review of their staffing structure. Creative Future have started to implement the recommendations of the review, which will mean they’ll benefit from a more effective staffing structure, more effective management, and better developed in-house skills.

In the past, we’ve also matched Creative Future with one of our consultants, who worked with them to develop a fundraising strategy, to write and submit a number of funding bids and to also undertake a needs analysis to help demonstrate the need for Creative Future’s services. We’re delighted that our consultant helped Creative Future to secure £36,000 in funding.

Our support has helped Creative Future to develop the skills and knowledge, plans and strategies, and the funding they need to run their organisation more effectively and to sustain their services and activities – so Creative Future will be able to continue to help under-represented artists and writers who’re excluded from mainstream arts opportunities.
