The Government Indemnity Scheme (GIS), administered by Arts Council England, aims to enhance and widen access to objects of a scientific, technological, artistic or historic nature, by underwriting the insurance of loans between UK borrowing and lending cultural heritage organisations. By doing this it enables organisations to borrow objects which they could not otherwise afford.
The scheme supports both national cultural heritage organisations (i.e. those museums funded by Parliament) and non-national cultural heritage organisations (i.e. not wholly or partly funded by Parliament).
