Be generous. Be more generous. Share your privilege.

Donate today

For the tenth year running, Arts Emergency has had more applications for mentors than we have the resources to take on. The need for our unique programme is clear. We simply lack the funds.

Over the past ten years it has cost an average of £1000 (or £83.33 a month) to run one young person’s place on our programme.

We really want to support 21 more mentees on the programme in January than we planned, so we’ve launched an appeal and are asking those who can to fund a place. Join our Bursar Club today.
