The AGBI is run by a Council of mainly practicing artists but also sculptors, designers, architects, medical professionals and craft workers who give their time freely and meet regularly to discuss cases. The Council is supported by a small team of staff based at Burlington House, London.

Any professional artist, painter, sculptor, illustrator or art teacher at A-level or above can apply for help if they have earned their living (or major part of it) from art and cannot work or earn due to accident, illness or older age. Widows and orphaned children of artists are also eligible for help.
