London lands cultural services boost

  • Comment

The London Cultural Improvement Programme (LCIP) has received a £900,000 cash injection aimed at ensuring the continued improvement of the lives of local people.

After the success of the first phase of LCIP’s work programme, the funding will be used for phase two, ‘Delivering value through London’s cultural services’ as the area looks to strengthen its position as England’s leading region for cultural improvement.

The £300,000 offered by London’s regional improvement and efficiency partnership Capital Ambition will be matched by £384,900 from LCIP partners, along with a further £203,900 of ‘in kind’ contributions.

The new scheme targets five key areas and aims to build capacity and support collaborative working with children’s services and a heritage change programme.

It also aims to support the London events network, boost marketing culture for the visitor economy and improve fundraising capability.

Chair of the London Cultural Improvement Group and Executive Director of Arts Council England, London, Moira Sinclair commented: “In the recession the value which culture contributes to London’s communities is even more important.

“This new phase of the programme will focus on demonstrating culture’s contribution to wider outcomes as well as making them better prepared to meet the challenges which lie ahead.
