Scops Arts Trust aims to give people of all ages, backgrounds and life circumstances, opportunities to access, participate in and enjoy the performing arts.

About the trust

Scops Arts Trust was established in March 2019 thanks to an endowment from the late Tony Wingate. Throughout his life, Tony enjoyed a love of the arts, particularly music, and as an inspirational English teacher, his other passion was education.

What we support

As a small trust awarding a limited number of grants each year to support high quality projects delivered by committed organisations, we hope to contribute towards the positive impact which the arts can make on people’s lives.

How to apply

The application window for our final funding round of 2021 has now closed. We anticipate that we will be inviting applications this October for consideration at the Trustees’ meeting in February 2022. Please note that any applications you send out with the advertised application window will not be carried forward and not considered. Check back here in early October for the details of specific dates.
