Trustees and Management team
A creative arts organisation
based in Sheffield, it provides
opportunities for artists, offers
performance classes and
reaches out to disadvantaged
people in marginalised
neighbourhoods. It borrowed
£150,000 towards purchase of a
new building in order to expand
and rely less on grants by
becoming more self-sufficient.

are now without their faith in
the future of charities
and social businesses
