The Department for Culture, Media and Sport provides grant in aid to the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) to enable it to care for, and to provide access to, its entire collection. Distribution of this funding is the responsibility of the V&A directors and trustees. However the V&A has kept the department informed of the likely level of savings that it anticipates will result from the closure of the site in Covent Garden as well as providing an indication of the level of investment needed to make the site fit for purpose. Part of the savings created by the move back to South Kensington will be reinvested back into the performing arts collection.
