Platform’s main supporters are trusts, foundations and statutory bodies from across the arts, environment, social justice and education sectors. The work is also supported by individuals at a range of levels. Some funders we have very long-term relationships with, to mutual benefit. Finally, Platform earns income from some of our performances, exhibitions, courses, books and artworks, and presentations. You too can help sustain what we do.

For many years, Platform has operated to internal guidelines on ethical fundraising which we review regularly. Read latest guidelines here.


We are immensely grateful to all the people and organisations that have supported us. Our current (and recent) funders include:
