Support Us

The Atkinson Development Trust is a charity (no: 1161020) whose vision is to develop The Atkinson as a centre for communities to enjoy art and learn together.

The support that we receive from a wide range of donations and grants plays a vital role in enabling The Atkinson to enhance our visitors experience and tell the story of Sefton.

Any gift, large or small, makes a real difference in helping us to continue our work with:

  • Caring for our collections for future generations
  • Increasing our work with young people and communities
  • Expanding our exhibitions programme
  • Developing our inspiring learning programmes

Your donations help us to care for the collections for future generations and keep admission free. Being a Charitable Incorporated Organisation enables the Trust to raise money independently of Sefton MBC, so all of the proceeds go towards our development programmes.
