Museum secures Arts Council England NPO funding

We are delighted to announce that we have secured new national funding of over £880,000 for 2018-22, by securing a place as a new Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.

The museum is one of the organisations that has secured revenue funding from Arts Council England for the very first time in the 2018-22 NPO funding round.

Of 1,160 applicants from across the arts sector, the museum is one of 831 successful applicants, and one of 183 applicants who join the National Portfolio for the very first time.

The funding will be used to create new staff posts which will put the museum’s unique collections online, reach out to increase the involvement of diverse audiences and schoolchildren in the museum, support volunteering at the museum, and fundraise for the museum’s refurbishment plans. Thackray Medical Museum will receive over £220,000 per year for the next four years to enable this work to happen.
