They’re proud to award money raised by National Lottery players to communities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. The National Lottery Community Fund distributes a share of this to projects to support people and communities to prosper and thrive.  The National Lottery is currently supporting our Liberate Dance classes.

Bruce Wake Charitable Trust was generously instigated and endowed by the late Bruce Wake who was himself a wheelchair user as a result of motor neurone disease before his untimely death in 1992 at 45 years of age.  His aim was to encourage and assist the disabled to participate in and enjoy leisure pursuits. Bruce Wake supports our Liberate Dance classes.

The Peter Harrison Foundation (PHF) was founded by Peter Harrison KGCN CBE in April 1999. Since that date, PHF has awarded nearly £50m to projects across the UK.

Sport England is a public body and invests up to £300 million in National Lottery and government money each year in projects and programmes that help people get active and play sports. It wants everyone in England, regardless of age, background, or level of ability, to feel able to engage in sports and physical activity. That’s why a lot of its work is specifically focused on helping people who do no, or very little, physical activity and groups who are typically less active - like women, disabled people and people on lower incomes. Sport England has awarded us funding to launch our new Liberate Young Adult classes on Saturdays. 

The Foyle Foundation is an independent grantmaking trust that distributes grants to UK charities whose dominant purpose is to benefit the arts. The Foyle Foundation awarded us funding towards running our Liberate Dance classes.
