Funding and Support
Burnley Youth Theatre is a registered charity, governed by a Board of Trustees. We employ professional staff to carry out our activities to deliver on our Mission which is ‘to creatively inspire children and young people to take their next steps.’
We are presently an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and receive a number of time-limited grants from Trusts and Foundations. Our main funders at present include; Burnley Borough Council, Henry Smith Foundation, Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and The Kinder Trust. Together these represent about half of our annual income.
