Costs for young people
The costs involved in providing opportunities for young people to complete the award vary greatly depending on the level, art form and setting.
Each centre approaches the direct costs to young people differently: some centres access free arts events or take advantage of discounted offers; others fundraise or subsidise activities from their core funding.
Some centres will charge a fee for participation and activities whereas others may cover the costs.
Access Fund grants
Arts Award centres can also apply for an Arts Award Access Fund grant.
Arts Award Access Fund provides small grants to individuals and groups who need financial help to achieve an Arts Award. Find out more
