Arts Factory aims to develop a strong portfolio of businesses that will fund an extensive community programme. The focus of this programme is on meeting the needs of the most marginalised people in our communities. We continually reshape our programme over time to achieve this goal.

Our key milestone is to reach a point where our businesses are strong enough to support the core costs of Arts Factory. We challenge ourselves to maintain our original values and prevent mission drift, whilst making the best use of investment opportunities to accelerate our financial growth.

All our businesses are social enterprises. Arts Factory is a company limited by guarantee. Any profits are ploughed back into the communities we serve for social benefit. Volunteers and others on work-placement schemes find vocational and work-readiness training opportunities through the operation of our businesses.
