The funding for the London Cultural Improvement Programme came to an end in 2011. The web pages remain live to ensure that the learning and resources from the programme are still available. For an overview of the programme visit the LCIP Index.
Phase one of the London Cultural Improvement Programme was made up of five work strands. Together these strands formed an effective programme which supported authorities in improving their performance in this sector:
- Culture & Sport Improvement Toolkit (CSIT)
- Local Authority Museum Improvement Programme (LAMIP)
- London Cultural Data Access Review Project (DATA)
- Measuring Social Outcomes (MSO)
- London Library Change Programme (LLCP)
The initial phase of LCIP aimed to build on the findings of the national cultural improvement pilots and prepare the cultural sector for the delivery of the new Local Area Agreements (LAAs) and Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA). [Following the May 2010 elections it was announced that CAA would be abolished].
Engagement in LCIP: Individual reports for each London borough on local authority and cultural organisation engagement in the programme
Phase two of the programme began in 2009 and ran concurrently with phase one projects that were still open.
