Can you help?

We believe that young people deserve the chance to be creative, curious and change the world. But they need your help more than ever.

Class, ethnicity and disability are still major barriers to young people gaining entry to the cultural industries, and the pandemic has heightened gaping inequalities in the creative pipeline. Young people are now facing lower job prospects, increased inequality, dramatically fewer internships and opportunities, and uncertainty around their future.

Given the last two years, our name has never been more true, nor more urgent. But at Arts Emergency, we're continuing to provide support on a bigger scale than before. 87% of our Young Talent feel more prepared for the future since joining Arts Emergency.

We are uniquely reliant on monthly donations. Just £5 a month goes a long way to funding mentors, cultural and professional opportunities and ongoing personalised support at a time when passing it on has never mattered more.

If you are a current monthly donor and would like to amend your donation amount, please get in touch. Contact our Fundraising Manager, Lucy.
