Our Small Grant: Big Improvement scheme provides funding to support museums across the South West.

We know that a small amount of money can make a big difference to museums and the communities in which they work with.

We fund projects that address one of the three strands of Arts Council England’s Accreditation Scheme:

  • Organisational health
  • Managing collections
  • Users and their experiences

Grants available:

  • Individual museums – up to £1,000 with 25% match funding
  • Partnerships – up to £7,000 with 25% match funding

How do I submit an application?

Applications are open every Spring. Our 2019 round of funding is now closed.
