Trusts and foundations

Creating change together

Charitable trusts and foundations play an important part in supporting our work, enabling us to go the extra mile.

Although we receive funding from Devon and Torbay Councils, the support of charitable trusts and foundations allows us to extend our impact far beyond what we could otherwise achieve.

If you’re a trustee, have contact with a trust, or are beginning to set a trust up, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch for more information.



Impact Story

Libraries Unlimited has been given National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) status from Arts Council England (ACE) for the second time running. 

Creative Communities, formerly known as Evolve, is an imaginative programme of events and artworks within Devon and Torbay’s libraries, delivered by Libraries Unlimited, in partnership with artists and communities and funded by Arts Council England and Exeter City Council.

Our programmes encourage residents and visitors to come together and share in creative activities, discover new talents and enjoy theatre, talks, musical performances and more within their local library.

Libraries Unlimited believes…

…in the unlimited potential of library services to make a positive difference to people’s lives and communities through a shared love of reading and access to high quality information and facilities.
