Our mission

At ArtSocial we are united by a shared belief in the power of art to transform lives – and to make a lasting difference to physical, mental and emotional health.

 ArtSocial Foundation puts this belief into action. Supported by ArtSocial club members’ contributions, private and corporate donations, we’re on a mission to use art to improve the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable young people with special needs, life-limiting health conditions or psychological trauma. 


The Foundation

ArtSocial Foundation is a UK registered charity (Registration Number: 1163100) founded in 2015 in London by Alina Uspenskaya.

Since 2015, we’ve partnered with charities in the UK, Europe and Russia to help transform the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

We want to make a real difference. That’s why before we fund any new project or organisation, we carry out thorough due-diligence and expert consultation.

While carrying out the due-diligence the trustees make sure that the organisations that the Foundation funds are capable of delivering the proposed activities and have implemented  appropriate systems of control, including adequate safeguarding policies and procedures.

 We don’t fund individuals, for-profit organisations, or non-registered organisations.

Your donation will help improve the lives of young people across the UK, Europe and Russia – all with the power of art
