A Shared Vision

  • To serve and reflect the full diversity of Coventry’s population through pioneering outreach work, imaginative programmes, high quality venues, flexible pricing, and sensitive customer service.  ​
  • To make positive changes to lives, by recognising the layered and complex inequalities that persist in some of our communities, and then offering innovative and tailored approaches. 
  • To always strive to widen the reach of our work and deepen the impact upon the lives of people and their communities. ​
  • To attract residents, and visitors from further afield in our destination venues, in ever-growing numbers, by exceeding customer expectations and by implementing measures to continually widen access.  ​
  • To play a leading role in the regeneration of Coventry, increasing pride in the city amongst its people, and contributing to inward investment with consequent city-wide benefits.  ​
  • To earn income from the destination venues that can further enhance and expand the Trust’s community work, ultimately bringing increased and more diverse usage in those venues.

A Shared Mission

  • To connect with and understand people and their communities, so that facilities and services can be specifically shaped to be relevant to their needs and to enrich their lives; ​
  • To continue to challenge the accepted norms about engagement and be driven as much by the impact upon people’s lives as by the numbers of people reached; and  ​
  • To understand complexity, to be persistent, and not be deterred or shy away from being innovative in pursuit of our goals. ​

A Shared Purpose

  • To bring about meaningful and lasting quality of life improvements for the diverse communities of Coventry.
