The goal of Scops Arts Trust is to help people to understand, participate in and enjoy the performing arts.

Our current interests lie in supporting organisations run by committed and passionate individuals to deliver projects that:

  • Widen access to the performing arts and have a lasting cultural impact on the community
  • Enhance the provision and quality of music education in schools and / or engage children and young people in music outside of school

We are particularly keen to help small-to-medium-sized organisations, although large charities are not excluded from applying. Most of our current grants support projects run by registered charities, but in exceptional circumstances, we will consider applications from established community groups as long as they have clear charitable aims. We award one-off grants and also consider multi-year funding. Please read our Grant Guidelines carefully before applying.
