We need to raise over £1.5million each year to provide life-changing creative experiences for more than 5,000 people.
Whether it’s delivering Art Therapy for vulnerable children; music and photography courses for young people at risk of exclusion; creative workshops that reduce the social isolation and loneliness of older people; or public art projects that help to unite disadvantaged communities – our work has never been more vital.
Without the generosity of our amazing supporters, we simply couldn’t continue to deliver our work. Whether you want to host a coffee morning or organise a fashion show, jump out of a plane or run a marathon, there are lots of ways you can fundraise for Impact Arts and help support our work.
Here are just some examples of how your money could help:
- £30 will support a young person to recognise their achievements
- £50 can provide a care experienced young person, vulnerable child, or older person with a resource pack (containing support materials, guidance, alongside creative resources)
- £250 will provide dedicated health and wellbeing support for an older person through our Craft Café Wellbeing Worker
- £2500 will help to provide care experienced young people with intensive one-to-one support in transitioning to independent living – this supports CEYP to realise their vision of their own home
- £3500 will provide intensive art therapy intervention for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children, helping to support children to realise their potential
- £5000 will help realise a young person’s aspirations and potential – providing a young person with intensive 12-week training and ongoing employability support

St Andrew's House of Horror
In 2017, Impact Arts were contacted by the management committee of St. Andrew’s University’s House of Horror Charity Gala – the largest student-run Hallowe’en themed charity event in Scotland. The committee were looking for a new charity partner for their event, which attracts approximately 1,000 students annually.
With the House of Horror evening placing great importance upon creativity, aesthetic and visual design, the management committee wanted a Scotland-based charity partner with an arts focus. They also wanted to support a charity working with children, as this was something close to their committee members’ hearts.
Following discussions with Impact Arts’ Director and Development Team, the committee were enthused by the work we did and felt we would be a great fit as a charity partner. They were particularly encouraged by Impact Arts’ Art Therapy programme, which offer one-to-one art therapy sessions to children in the East End of Glasgow acutely affected by familial alcohol or substance misuse. It was decided that Impact Arts would be the official charity partner for the event, and that Impact Arts would help with promoting the event and the committee’s generous donation.
The House of Horror event which took place in St. Andrew’s on October 31st 2017 raised an incredible £10,000 for Impact Arts' work with children.
“This year, our committee wanted to partner with a charity who matched our committee values and the nature of our highly creative event - we found both in Impact Arts.
“The purpose of our event was to draw attention to how art and creativity can change the world for people, and how important art therapy programmes truly are. We hope to encourage that belief within our committee, within our guests, and within our wider community as well, and inspire people to harness their creative passions - we were so impressed by some of the brilliant costumes we saw on the night!
“Thank you to Impact Arts for agreeing to partner with us. We hope to assist in their impactful work in the future.” Sophia Chiang, Executive Director, House of Horror Charity Gala 2017
The team at Impact Arts work hard to secure over £1.5m of funding per year to provide life changing creative experiences for more than 5000 people.
You can help us achieve this target through making a single gift, or a regular donation. Thank you.
