Trusts and Foundations

Trusts and Foundations play a vital role in supporting the work of The Watermill. There are several areas of the theatre’s work that currently attract trust and foundation support, these include:

  • Our acclaimed work on stage
  • The Outreach and Education programme which reached over 19,000 people  last year
  • Our groups for young people and The Watermill Youth Ensemble 
  • Specific projects including workshops for adults and children who are disadvantaged or ‘at risk’ in the    community
  • Our Community Associate programme and specific access provision at The Watermill
  • Our touring programme – locally and nationally
