We are the voice for the UK’s creative industries, working with policy-makers and politicians at every level on the decisions that matter most to our members.

 We champion the creative industries and advocate for the sector to be at the heart of economic and social policy. It was at our anniversary event in 2017 that the secretaries of state for business and culture first announced the creative industries as a priority in government’s industrial strategy. Since then, we have remained at the forefront of UK economic strategy, again named as a priority sector in government’s Plan for Growth.

We work with our members to influence government through high-profile campaigns, industry insights and authoritative responses to consultations and announcements. Our member-led working groups, roundtables and UK Council play a central role in shaping our priorities and amplifying the case for the UK’s creative industries.

It is because of their unending support, partnership and creative ideas that we have been able to respond quickly and effectively on issues that matter to them the most: from the impacts of the pandemic and Brexit, to creative education and innovation.
