Access to Industry was established as a charity in 2000. Initially the creative industry sector provided the focus for our programmes but through time we expanded the remit of our work as well as our geographical reach.

Our history and development inform the content of the programmes we offer today. We are pleased to offer a broad range of opportunities to anyone eligible, regardless of background or age. We have increased our professional skills and knowledge by supporting unemployed people with particular needs, whether they are in recovery from substance use, have an offending history, experience of homelessness, or require support for their mental health.
