As part of our role as Lewisham’s Anchor cultural institution, we are offering dedicated fundraising support to creative organisations and artists in the borough.

Book a 1-1 session with an experienced professional fundraiser to discuss your fundraising strategy, workshop a specific funding application, or get advice on a campaign.

To be able to book a FREE consultation slot, you need to complete the following two steps:

All spaces are bookable in 50-min time slots, with a limit of one booking per individual/organisation.


How do I book?

In order to access these spaces you must submit a support request and have confirmation from the Albany that your request has been approved.

You must also have an active Creative Communities Membership in order to book a consultation slot. Don’t have one yet? Sign up now!

Why do I have to submit a support request?

We need to make sure your request fits within the type of support we’re able to provide, and we want to make sure we are offering our consultation slots to individuals, organisations, or projects that reflect our mission and values.

We will also ask for your details so that we can report back to our funders on the types of artists and projects we have supported.

Once your support request has been approved, you will be able to book a consultation slot. If you have any questions or your needs change please get in touch.

How much does it cost ?

The consultation slot is free of charge with an Annual Membership.

This offer is open to all Creative Communities Membership types – Standard, Pay-a-bit-less, and Associate (free).

Where will the consultation take place?

Consultations will happen either in person at the Albany or online.

When can I book, and how often are bookings available?

Slots will become available on a monthly basis (subject to availability) on a first-come-first-served basis.
