Since Arty-Folks established in November 1995 the Heart of England Community Foundation supported us numerous times and in 2017 granted us 3 years funding to develop a service specifically for young adults 18-30 years old.

The People’s Health Trust granted us twice 2-year funding that helped us further develop peer support and in particular enable those most vulnerable members who are struggling with hearing voices, intrusive thoughts and hallucinations to connect to others and form meaningful friendships lasting beyond Arty-Folks.

The Lloyds Bank Foundation funded us twice to provide an extensive package of training and support to staff and volunteers help us increase the financial resilience of our charity.

The National Lottery, the Arts Council England and many more past and present funders helped with all areas of our work and we are extremely grateful to them all.
