support us

Brixton House is a registered charity that relies on philanthropic support to achieve its pioneering work in developing new talent and skills, creating new, experimental theatre and engaging children, young people and disenfranchised communities with the arts.  

Funding from individual donors, charitable trusts and foundations, and companies has a direct and measurable impact on the work we deliver, the participants we work with and the young artists whose talent and careers we help to develop.  

individual donors  

Our donors are essential and valued members of the Brixton House community.  We hope that you will join our family of supporters, artists and the local community in our journey towards a pioneering future in our new building.  

A gift of any size will make a difference to the development of Brixton House, helping to ensure that our building will be welcoming, state of the art and accessible for all.

We welcome the opportunity to forge strong and mutually beneficial partnerships with companies, from local enterprises to international brands.  Partnership with Brixton House could help your company achieve its CSR and ESG ambitions, its business and marketing goals, and could have a tremendous positive impact on the young people, artists and audiences that we work with.  

Your help could give new talent a place to flourish, ensure young lives are enriched by artistic engagement and employment, and give those without a voice a place where they may find one.

charitable trusts and foundations

Brixton House works with schools, young people, elders, vulnerable or underserved groups and community activists to create participation opportunities, tackle inequality and encourage artistic expression.  

Our new theatres, rehearsal studios and learning spaces will be fully accessible and welcoming to participants of all ages and abilities, and our programme will help to develop and encourage the theatre talent of the future, especially from those communities who have been traditionally excluded from the arts.  

The support of charitable trusts and foundations is crucial to the completion of the new Brixton House building and to our ongoing artistic, learning and participation programmes.

To learn more about Brixton House and our future plans, please contact Darryl de Prez, Head of Development, at  
Your support could make a  significant impact on the following projects:  
  • Equipping our rehearsal and workshop spaces to the highest specifications  
  • Equipping our dedicated spaces for children and young people with complex and multiple disabilities  
  • Equipping our theatre spaces with flexible seating and accessible lighting rigs 
  • Equipping one of our studio theatres with audiovisual and projection technology so that it can also act as a cinema/screening room  
  • Our community learning and participation projects  
  • Our programming at Brixton House and beyond  
  • Accessible theatre design courses opening career opportunities in the theatre to a new and diverse generation of artists  
  • Discounted ticket schemes for local young people and elders, low- income families and organisations working with at-risk groups  

Thank you to all those who have supported us in the past and who continue to support our future. We thank you on behalf of all the young people, community members and early-career artists who have benefited from your generosity.
