Applause is a registered charity, and we fundraise to grow and develop our activities. We are hugely thankful to our principal investor, Arts Council England, which means funding thanks to National Lottery players plays a huge part in supporting our work. We are also really thankful to all our other supporters who make it possible for us to have such an important impact on both local communities and many creative practitioners.
Connecting communities and cultivating creativity have tangible benefits for society:
Tackling isolation and loneliness
Sustaining elderly people and strengthens social ties
Inspiring creativity and innovation
Ensuring young people have the chance to fulfil their creative potential
Creating more opportunities for cohesion and unity
Allowing communities to have an active role in their local cultural life
We have received funding support from many sources over the years, and we would like to acknowledge all of them here.
