Business support and development

Some examples of our current work:

Toonspeak Young People’s Theatre

Animate have been contracted by GCVS through the Glasgow City Council Integrated Grant Fund Capacity Building Programme to provide support to Toonspeak to create an organisational development plan, which will help them progress to the next level.

Toonspeak uses theatre and the performing arts to ‘challenge and inspire young people to create their own performances and manage their own projects’, helping them to reach their full potential and to inspire positive change within communities of disadvantage.

They were recently successful in their application to Creative Scotland for (3 years) Regular Funding. This strategic investment recognises the quality of their work and raises both their national profile and expectations that they can achieve their expressed ambitions.

Dundee Academy of Sport (DAoS), Abertay University

We are carrying out a future business options appraisal for DAoS which: uses sport as a vehicle for engaging young people in education at school and closes the attainment gap for children who live in deprived areas;  further develops the region’s workforce in the sport and leisure industry, and supports young people’s transition from school to both Further and Higher Education.
