Synergies between public policies and programmes

Arts Council England and the Department for Education fund a network of Bridge Organisations, which connect the education and cultural sectors to enhance the access that young people have to arts and cultural opportunities in areas where it is most needed. Bridge Organisations form Cultural Education Partnerships with a range of local partners including (but not limited to) local authorities, schools, libraries, museums, art organisations, music education hubs and further and higher education institutions to develop networks of cultural provision in their areas.

For further examples, please see the subheading 'Cross-sectoral cooperation' in 'Administration and Governance'.

Partnerships between the culture and creative sectors, youth organisations and youth workers

Music Education Hubs involve local authorities, schools, arts organisations and third sector organisations working together to create joined-up music education provision in areas of greatest need. They are funded by the Department for Education.

Moreover, Music Mark is a membership organisation representing music services and lead organisations in Music Education Hubs, enabling its members to deliver high-quality musical and social outcomes for children and young people.
