Sharing Heritage – New Funding Programme

Sharing Heritage is a new funding programme to help people across the UK explore, conserve and share all aspects of the history and character of their local area.

With a commitment from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) of £3m each year, grants between £3,000 and £10,000 will now be available to groups who want to discover their local heritage.

This new programme follows the unprecedented success of last year’s one-off HLF grant scheme ‘All Our Stories’, which ran in tandem with BBC Two’s The Great British Story: A People’s History, presented by historian, Michael Wood. The scheme was four times oversubscribed and convinced HLF of people’s appetite to get involved.

Sharing Heritage is a rolling programme, meaning you can apply anytime. The application form is really straightforward, and they will assess your application in eight weeks. Please contact your local team to find out when decisions are made.

If you are thinking of applying under this programme, you can express your interest online. HLF will let you know if your application is suitable for this programme and you can then decide whether to go ahead.
