Level Up: Development Fund
The SEMDP Level Up: Development Fund is open to accredited/working towards accreditation museums that have completed a Museum MOT with their MDO.
The Museum MOT is a process that highlights priority areas for working with Museum Development over 12 months by outlining the areas you want to invest in to create a more sustainable, resilient and confident museum. Museums that undertake a Museum MOT may be going through periods of change, or may have outstanding Areas for Improvement around accreditation.
How much can I apply for?
Your museum can access a maximum of £4000 in financial support to meet the needs highlighted in your Action Plan, produced by your MDO and based on the results of your Museum MOT, your Accreditation Areas for Improvement and your Forward Plan. However, this figure includes any financial support used by your MDO to fund activities, training or support to meet objectives in your Museum MOT Action Plan. You will need to ensure you have spoken to your MDO prior to submitting a proposal to the Fund.
When can I submit a proposal?
There is no set deadline for proposals to the Level Up: Development Fund. Proposals will be considered on a first come/first served basis until 12pm on the 31 December 2018 or until the fund is spent.
