Arts Council England Catalyst Grant Success for The Edge

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded an Arts Council England Catalyst grant to support our organisational growth over the next year!

Arts Council England have invested £2,869,493 in 117 small to medium sized organisations through the Catalyst: Small grants programme.

Each organisation has been awarded between £10,000 and £30,000 to help create a more sustainable and resilient arts and culture sector.

The fund supports organisations to invest in systems, or training and development for staff, volunteers and boards, or to cover the costs of external expertise to increase fundraising.

With this grant we’ll be able to invest in important training and developing systems in-house to allow us to deliver even more brilliant work, share more widely the potentially life changing work we’re doing with the homeless, vulnerable adults and young people, and reach even more audiences with the fantastic touring work which comes to our theatre.

A big thank you to all of our supporters, from regular donors to anyone that takes part in our classes and courses, buys a ticket to one of our shows, or just has a brew in our Café.

Congratulations to our friends across the North West who have also been successful. To read more about the programme and see the other successful applicants, click here
