Museums Sheffield has a project ‘Inspiring the Next Generation’ in The Aviva Community Fund which offers the chance for local community projects to win funding. We need your votes to get to the final and win up to £5000!
You have to register to vote, (it takes 2 minutes) and you get 10 votes to use how you want. The more votes we have the better chance we have of receiving the much-needed funding.The funding would be used to provide additional resources and equipment in our under 5s sessions at Weston Park Museum and to enhance our school learning programme.

During 2014-15 Museums Sheffield welcomed over a million visitors to all its sites. Over 15,500 school children took part in our learning programmes and over 9,000 adults and families attended talks, classes and activity sessions.
This past year also saw the conservation of hundreds of items from across the collections, improving their condition in order to safeguard them for the future. Generous donations from the Friends of Museums Sheffield and a number of individuals allowed us to conserve a stunning selection of watercolours, drawings and prints by artists as diverse as John James Audubon, John Flaxman, Thomas Gainsborough and Stanley Spencer.
We rely on gifts of all sizes from trusts and foundations, organisations, and individual people. With your help we're able to continue to provide access to art for all.
