Equalities
Do you consider your organisation to be diversity led?

We are collecting data on equalities to better understand the make-up of the organisations
this fund will support. We have a commitment to ensuring that we fully represent the diversity
of the sector in our funding.

By diversity led we mean that either (i) 51% or above, of the board and senior management
team are from diverse backgrounds: or (ii) organisations self-define as diverse-led based on
who is making their key strategic decisions. By ‘making key decisions’ we mean that decisions
on core strategic and financial matters are taken by a diverse group of decision-makers, not
that consultation is undertaken as part of decisions that are subsequently taken by a group
that is not diverse-led. These definitions are informed by research by  the Arts Council.

An example to help you to answer the following question is:

If you have 70% of your leadership team that identify as BAME, 60% that identify as women,
30% that have a disability and 20% that are LGBT, you would answer 'Yes' for BAME-Led and
Woman-Led, then 'No' for Disability-Led and LGBT-Led.





Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on your business
We are collecting standard data as part of all our programmes at this time to better understand the effect of COVID-19 on the sector as a whole. This data will be used to give us the best understanding of the challenges facing you and organisations like yours. This will inform our lending and grant making and contribute to our efforts to influence government action to support the sector. When we use this data it will be anonymised and aggregated
