RAMM's Case Histories gallery

RAMM receives support from many different funders


A flagship Exeter City Council service, RAMM also attracts funding from other sources. Here are some of RAMM’s funders:

Arts Council England

Major Partner Museum Programme

Reach South West is the consortium name for a Major Partner Museum partnership between the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery (RAMM) in Exeter and Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery.

Reach South West is one of 21 Major Partner Museum Services nationwide funded by Arts Council England to support excellence and resilience within regional museums.

Reach South West have previously also benefitted from the Arts Council England’s Renaissance Major Grants Programme from 2012 to 2015.

Museum Development Fund

A partnership of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum Exeter, Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives, Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and the South West Federation of Museums and Art Galleries is one of the nine successful applicants to Arts Council England’s Museum development fund.

This innovative partnership will receive £1,192,000 between 2012 and 2015 to provide a network of professional advice to all museums in the South West region, particularly supporting smaller museums. Their priority will be to improve the sustainability and resilience of the museums sector, helping to maximise benefits to audiences and communities.

Museum development funds will target areas of work that will increase the resilience and sustainability of these museums. Programmes of work will include business planning, workforce development, attracting new audiences and organisational improvement.

Heritage Lottery Fund

The Heritage Lottery Fund has contributed nearly £10million to Exeter City Council’s £15million redevelopment project that will allow RAMM to grow and develop to meet 21st Century needs and maintain its position as Exeter’s No. 1 attraction. RAMM’s redevelopment project

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) enables communities to celebrate, look after and learn more about our diverse heritage. They fund the entire spread of heritage – including buildings, museums, natural heritage and the heritage of cultural traditions and language.

Designation Challenge Fund

The MLA’s Designation Scheme has identified RAMM’s World Cultures collection as a pre-eminent collection of national and international importance. The collection has benefited from the Designation Challenge Fund (DCF) which supports improved management and accessibility of these collections. Projects have included joint exhibitions at Plymouth and Stroud museums and work with local schools and universities to link the display into the curriculum themes of citizenship and identity.

Viridor Credits

Linking RAMM’s new Garden Entrance to Rougemont Gardens and placing the Roman Wall in a perfect setting is a new informal open area – the Garden – which is for picnics, live events, and quiet repose.  This area was made possible by funding from Viridor Credits, an independent, not-for-profit organisation which provides funding for community, heritage and biodiversity projects around the UK through the Landfill Communities Fund.
