Prosper North is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and managed by Creative United and forms part of Key Fund’s wider Northern Cultural Regeneration Fund. The aim of the programme is to increase resilience, growth and sustainability in the cultural heritage sector.
Around 80 organisations, from small museums to cultural venues, from archives to festivals, will benefit from a free programme of intensive business support including multiple 1:1 sessions with a business adviser matched to their needs, plus a series of workshops and webinars.
Charities, social enterprises, Community Interest companies and Companies limited by guarantee or share, that can clearly demonstrate a positive social impact as a result of their output, are eligible to apply. Organisations must be based in one of the 11 northern-most Local Enterprise Partnership regions, there is a map here.
