Arts Council England announced today that The Audience Agency will be funded as a Sector Support Organisation from 2018-2022.

Sector Support Organisations are a new category to be added into ACE’s National Portfolio. Their activity focuses on offering support services to the sector. Other Sector Support Organisations include Bridge Organisations, Museum Development Providers, umbrella and networking organisations, strategic library and museum partnership bodies, and other organisations that support the arts and cultural sector as part or all of their function.

CEO Anne Torreggiani says:

“We're delighted by this news which means we can continue to offer services helping to build participation through Audience Finder. We've worked so hard alongside hundreds of colleagues to create a unique set of ground breaking tools with the sector, for the sector. This new SSO funding means we can continue to innovate and offer free insight to around 1,000 orgs including NPOs. Developments will include a raft of improvements co-designed with users, with an emphasis on using data confidently to inform new directions and new relationships. We are also looking forward to forging strong alliances with fellow SSOs to ensure a joined-up approach which delivers real value to the sector.”
