Trusts and Foundations

We rely on support from Trusts and Foundations to sustain and develop our annual programme of work. Together we can deliver transformative projects that have a positive impact on the people whose lives they touch.

The areas of our work of most interest to Trust and Foundation supporters include:


Through Almeida Participation we are committed to ensuring that every child and young person, whatever their circumstances, has the opportunity to access our unique theatre and the activity it has to offer. We connect with young people through targeted outreach, schools, and community groups. 

The Almeida aims to reach more than 3,000 young people a year, to inspire, challenge and engage them as audience members, participants and theatre makers. Alongside this, we provide creative opportunities for young people that increase confidence, communication skills and team-work ability.

We believe in putting artists at the heart of our organisation and that directors become great artists by making their own work. In support of this, we have created a residency opportunity for up to 10 emerging directors a year, which sees them working with us on productions, contributing to our artistic programme and becoming an integral part of the whole organisation. 

Seeking to enhance our offer, we have also developed a Resident Designers Programme for talented early-career lighting and sound designers, as well as activities to support new writers. 


Having built our Access Programme of assisted performances over a number of years, we pride ourselves on our reputation for high-quality facilities and provision.

We aim to ensure that everyone who enters our building, regardless of their age, sensory or physical access needs, will enjoy a positive and memorable experience. Our latest offer includes the development of relaxed and dementia-friendly performances.
