The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. They work with over 100 countries in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Last year they reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. They make a positive contribution to the countries they work with by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. Founded in 1934 they are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body. They receive a 15% core funding grant from the UK government.


Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich peoples’ lives. They support activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections.

Between 2018 and 2022, they will invest £1.45 billion of public money from government and an estimated £860 million from the National Lottery to help create these experiences for as many people as possible across the country.
