We are thrilled to announce that Grimm & Co is one of three organisations in Rotherham to be successful in securing core funds and status as a National Portfolio Organisation by Arts Council England. The support provides core funding, critical support, partnership and much more for the next three years. It will enable us to maintain, develop and grow our programmes with children, young people and families across Yorkshire and the Humber.
Founding Director, Deborah Bullivant, said:
“Grimm & Co have been fortunate to secure National Portfolio status and core funding for four years and this has enabled us to plan, develop and deliver an exciting and innovative programme for communities. We are overjoyed to hear that our recent application is successful, securing our core at a pivotal time for this charity, hurtling towards opening our new, enchanting story destination in 2023”.

Arts Council England Chief Executive, Darren Henley, said:
“Together, each of the 990 organisations that have been offered funding today will contribute to a portfolio that is rich, varied and truly national. This is our widest ever spread of investment across the country, ensuring that many more people will have access to a wider choice of exceptional art, culture and creative opportunities on their doorsteps. We are in tough times but we must remember creativity brings with it extraordinary dividends, boosting our country’s economic growth, creating jobs, bringing communities closer together, and making us happier as individuals. Everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits it brings, and with this investment, we believe we’ve taken a decisive step towards making that vision a reality.”
