Children and the Arts engages with disadvantaged children nationwide who do not have access to high-quality arts activity because of either social or economic barriers.

Through a network of partners they use the arts as a platform to inspire and enable personal and social development amongst those who are hardest to reach. Through their work children learn that cultural venues are welcoming, accessible and exciting places to visit.

They are the only national educational charity committed to ensuring that all children in the UK are inspired by the arts.

They create long-term partnerships between arts organisations and their local schools in disadvantaged areas through their funding programe, Start.

They run large-scale national arts projects called Quests.
