News and updates

We will publish regular updates and are developing a series of case studies highlighting the practical application of the Quality Framework within arts organisations. We will show examples of best practice and areas in which the framework has had a strategic and operational impact on the organisations we fund.

Quality Framework - guidelines for arts organisations


SROI project

The Social Return on Investment (SROI) project is a Scottish Government funded programme designed to develop, promote and support the use of SROI across the third sector in Scotland.  SROI is a way of capturing outcomes by demonstrating the value of the social and environmental impacts that an organisation makes. Visit the SROI website to find out more.

Living Places - Culture and Sport Planning Toolkit

living places is an alliance of public bodies in England who believe everyone should benefit from the arts, sport, public space, heritage, museums, libraries and archives, the built environment and the creative industries, regardless of where they live.

The Culture and Sport Planning Toolkit is a practical source of information and advice for all practitioners involved in culture and planning. For the first time, this toolkit brings together a combination of existing and new tools to incorporate planning for culture and sport into new and existing developments.
