Through Reimagine, we can provide grants of £10,000 to £50,000 for projects that are:
Creative or innovative
In 2023, there is one key aim for the Reimagine programme. We want to fund projects that will help organisations reimagine their support for the workforce.
The term ‘workforce’ could include your colleagues, volunteers and/or your professional networks. We can support a range of activities that enable you to develop, diversify and/or sustain the sector in the face of the most pressing challenges.
We want to support your colleagues, volunteers and/or partners working in these priority areas: collections, exhibitions, and learning.
Our priority outcomes are: strengthening Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) within the sector; creating and improving opportunities for people to work in the sector; increasing and enhancing partnerships.
Funded projects might include, for example:
New staff members or tailored support from freelancers/external partners
Joint programming or knowledge- and skills-sharing via a professional network
Mentoring schemes, training or placements to open up new pathways into the sector
In-house training or wellbeing offers for staff and volunteers to boost skills, morale and retention over the longer term
Volunteer recruitment through outreach and events
Access and skills audits, along with new policies, strategies or advisory groups
New toolkits or updated best practice guidance for the sector
Some improvements to infrastructure, systems or equipment to enhance hybrid or remote working
