The full set of tables detailing the work of regularly funded organisations in 2007/08 are now available. The period covered is April 2007-March 2008.

About the regularly funded organisation annual submission

Each year organisations that receive regular funding from the Arts Council complete an annual submission. In 2007/08 the annual submission was completed as an Excel document.

The annual submission collects information on organisational profile, financial statements, activity, learning and skills, engagement and participation and touring activity.

The annual submission is used as a monitoring document, providing evidence of the use of Arts Council England’s funding including reporting to Government and other key stakeholders; informing our monitoring of the whole regularly funded organisation portfolio – a major strand of our funding – and informing Arts Council policies, aims and ambitions.

Year-on-year comparisons

Since the last release of regularly funded organisation annual submission data for 2006/07 we have changed the way in which we aggregate activity and attendance data. This is to allow for more accurate calculations of activity and attendance by artform, which will be published shortly.

We have also changed the way in which we calculate total funds carried forward. For the purpose of this release we have reanalysed 2006/07 data to allow for comparative analysis to be made across 2006/07and 2007/08. Previously published regularly funded organisation annual submission data up to and including 2006/07 is not comparable with this release.

For data relating to the 2006/07 full sample and constant sample analysis with 2005/06 as well as 2005/06 full and constant sample analysis please use the links on the left.
