The aim of Regular Funding is to provide three-year funding support for a range and breadth of organisations that make a vital contribution to the current health and future development of the arts, screen and creative industries in Scotland. This route to funding is also a vital contributor to the delivery of the ambitions set out in our 10-year plan, Unlocking Potential, Embracing Ambition.
