Good and effective relationships with Government can help impact key policy areas relevant to the arts sector. The Government’s £1.6bn Covid Cultural Recovery Fund was developed by the sector and Government working very closely together and is a good example of this.

As public finances come under increasing pressure these Government relationships will become even more important. Good Government relations allow you to pursue your cause, give you allies and advocates to call on in time of need, and put you front of mind when opportunities arise.


With our experience of working at the very highest levels of Government we work with our clients to:

  • Develop and agree objectives for public affairs strategy - funding, advocacy, policy
  • Review current strategy and activity
  • Develop new strategy to deliver agreed objectives - network mapping, events, lobbying, engagement programmes
  • Create access to our network of contacts at Number 10, the DCMS, the Department for Education, the GLA, Opposition parties, and beyond
