Paul Hamlyn Foundation Arts-based Learning Fund

Grants are available for charities, community or-ganisations, social enterprises and not-for-profit companies active in the arts and working in part-nership with educational institutions.

  • More and Better grants of up to £400,000 (for up to four years) to help or-ganisations, or the sector, to deliver more effective arts-based learning
