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 contract a team of part time workers; an organisation Manager, Hub Manager East, Hub Manager West, Digital Communications Lead and our Administrator.

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 and so on.

With ever rising costs, our annual expenditure now averages £110,000 pa – or £51 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.

Our funds come from many diverse sources; trusts and foundations, local fundraising events and generous individuals.

We would like to hear from individuals, organisations and businesses that would be interested in donating funds, a service or skill or developing other creative ways of supporting us.

You can find financial information about Arts Together at the charity commission website.

Please be assured that your contribution will be used to improve the quality of life of frail, isolated older people in Wiltshire.

Thank you.
