DID YOU KNOW? Facts about Artspace Cinderford:
Here are some facts and figures about Artspace’s work.

Artspace is a Registered Charity and was initiated in 1988 by a group of volunteers, many of whom had learning difficulties.

On average, Artspace deliver around 1,000 sessions a year, these sessions generate around 11,000 attendances. This is an incredible output for such a small organisation with a small team and a modest turnover of, on average £180,000 per annum!

We are fully inclusive, classes represent the diversity of the area in which we live. We work with schools and other youth organisations and specialise in provision for children and young people facing challenging circumstances. Our adult education programme generates around 380 enrolments a year. 60% of those are from people with learning or physical difficulties.

We provide creative opportunities that help improve skills, confidence, well-being and social connectedness. Our programme helps to reduce isolation, nurture transferrable skills and provides alternative qualifications for young people.

On average, just 3% of the charity’s income comes from donations from the public. Can you help us raise this to 6%? Turn to page 5 to find out how you can help support Artspace.
