Insights from place-led funding

In a new report, we share learning from the place-led funding we’ve done over the past five years, which has informed and shaped our strategy in Creative, Confident Communities.

Please note that the map at the end is interactive, but you will need to download it first. You can do this by clicking on the download button in the top left-hand corner.

The aim of this report is to help bring our new strategy for Creative, Confident, Communities to life, and to share insights from what we have learned from our three ‘place pilots’, and what we want to do next. In a map at the end of the report, we also hightlight some of the projects that have helped to inform our strategy for Creative, Confident Communities.

We hope it will be useful for current and future partners, as well as for other funders in considering their role in place-led funding.
