Seven Stories is an affiliate member of The Happy Museum Affiliate Scheme, a new peer learning network for the sector.

We have many valued and long term partnerships with publishers and other businesses.

We present fantastic opportunities to be involved with the UK's only cultural centre dedicated to children's books and to make valuable connections with customers, families, employees and communities in creative ways.

Our partnerships with grant-making trusts and foundations make a big difference to our work with children and young people.

There are always opportunities to support our ground breaking exhibitions and learning and participation programmes, as well as supporting the best care for and access to our collections. Please contact Amanda Beckham, Fundraising & Development Manager, about the difference your support could make.
