Our members focus on outreach and connecting with individuals, groups and communities locally, regionally and nationally.

To achieve this, our members first focus on how people can access the opportunity and what could prevent them from accessing it. Identifying the barriers to participation and finding ways to remove them is central to the ethos behind our members’ approach. Our members work continually to create an inclusive and inspiring atmosphere. They offer physical and virtual spaces filled with a sense of permission and freedom where participants can be involved, enabling them to take part in new experiences, be creative and find their voice in an open and welcoming setting.

Our members offer these opportunities in a range of different ways, often in partnership with local authorities, other public sector bodies, the third sector, and cultural partners.
