Cultural Sector Development Grants

The Cultural Sector Development Fund can provide grants of up to £1000 to support community-led arts, cultural, heritage or creative programmes, for both residents and visitors to enjoy.

For example, this fund could help to support a programme that teaches new skills or craftmanship, offers cultural interactions or provides new opportunities for people to participate and experience our rich heritage of local history and traditions. 

If you think you have an eligible programme and want to find out more, please read the guidance notes.
