Regular Funding

About the Programme

Regular Funding is one of Creative Scotland’s main funds for arts and creative organisations in Scotland, offering stable long-term funding support. It will fund ongoing running costs, helping organisations to plan, operate and deliver their work over three years. It can also be used to help the organisation change or develop their future plans.

The network of organisations that this fund supports are expected to play a key role in helping Creative Scotland deliver against its overall ambitions, and to make a significant contribution to society.

Regular Funding 2018-21

The Regular Funding Network 2018-21 consists of 121 organisations, of which 19 are new and 102 continue with three-year funding, supported by £101.6m Grant in Aid funding through a three-year commitment from the Scottish Government, as set out in the recent draft budget statement.

Update, 19 September 2019: Creative Scotland is currently undertaking a review of our long-term, overall approach to funding. We have recently conducted a programme of public conversations, which has gathered thousands of views, contributions and ideas. These will be crucial in helping toguide the next steps in our funding approach.

We understand that there is a significant planning period required for the 121 organisations currently within the 2018-21 Regular Funding Network to respond to any funding approach changes. In order to enable all to work through and implement the outcomes of the funding review, we have extended in principle the funding agreements for organisations currently in receipt of Regular Funding for one year from April 2021, subject to available budget.

We will continue to keep you updated on progress. Find out more about our funding review progress at creativescotland.com/conversations, and if you have any questions about Regular Funding or our Funding Review, please contact us at enquiries@creativescotland.com.
