Sharing Heritage – Heritage Lottery Fund
This fund is available to not-for-profit groups wanting to explore, share and celebrate their community’s heritage. Activities supported can include events, exhibitions, festivals and celebrations or producing local history publications, conservation of individual heritage items, volunteer training and support.
Start-up grants will be available to community groups taking responsibility for heritage, create the right constitutional framework (inc. the costs of professional advice on legal forms and governance structures) and to assess options in arriving at a strategy for managing the heritage. They may then make a further application for a grant for a project focused on their heritage.
Grants will be between £3,000 & £10,000 and applications can be made from February 2013:
