Why Support Us

Like many small charities Arts Together depends heavily on our team of volunteers to keep everything functioning on a day to day basis, and ensure that the service we offer is always high quality and reliable. But we still incur inevitable costs.

We employ a part-time Project Manager, a part-time Finance and Communications Manager, a part-time Admin Assistant and have recently recruited a part-time Relationship Manager.

We pay all our artists a competitive fixed rate for each session and cover their travel costs and materials. Then there is transport, lunches, members’ well-being support, training for volunteers and artists, accountancy costs, insurance, DBS checks, postage, phone bills, and so on.

Our annual costs average £60,000 pa – or £27 per member per session. Without our volunteers and support-in-kind, that cost would be close to double and Arts Together would not be sustainable.
