The Reader has a collective of supporters to thank, including commissioners, grant funders, corporate partners and individuals.

We are proud to receive funding from Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation, as well as support from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the Steve Morgan Foundation.

The refurbishment of the Calderstones Mansion House was funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Liverpool City Council and grant funders including Garfield Weston Foundation and Tudor Trust.
