Reimagine grants

These new project grants aim to help organisations as they reimagine their activities following the pandemic. They offer support to build expertise, capacity and connections within and outside the sector.

Our Reimagine grants are designed to inspire creativity and also to increase stability in the sector. We can provide funding for projects that:

  • enable experimentation rooted in the current context for your organisation
  • include meaningful engagement with diverse audiences
  • result in greater expertise within the sector.

Our Reimagine grants have been developed in consultation with the sector. We are grateful to you for helping us shape the programme.

You told us what you needed; this is our funding to support you and your ideas as we move forward together. These new grants are not intended to provide ‘emergency’ or ‘recovery’ funding. However, we have designed this scheme to exist within and address the present, challenging environment, and to prepare you for the future.

Through this programme, we will offer project grants of £5,000 up to £50,000. Small grants will be £5,000 to £15,000 and large grants will be £15,000 to £50,000.

The aims of this programme are:

  • to support organisations as they reimagine their activities following the pandemic;
  • to help organisations build expertise, capacity and connections within and outside the sector.

We want to fund projects that meet both aims and address at least one of our priority areas for support:

  • Collections
  • Digital
  • Engagement
  • Workforce

The Reimagine programme incorporates and replaces our former project grants (Respond and Reimagine, Professional Network Grants and Small Project Grants). We hope this will provide a clearer, simpler application process as you navigate the next phase of recovery.

Our next deadline for applications is Monday 11 October.
