Heritage

Grants are available to registered charities, public bodies and registered friendly societies for projects in the UK concerned with social welfare and preservation:

  •  Social Welfare: grants are for projects that have a positive impact on the lives of women and girls facing severe and multiple disadvantage, particularly where their vulnerabilities put them at risk of offending
  •  UK Heritage: the main emphasis is on projects that conserve historical buildings, monuments and collections.

Funding is available through two schemes:

  •  Main Grant Fund: grants above £5,000 are 
available
  •  Small Grant Fund: for requests of £5,000 
or less

Grants can be used for project costs, revenue costs (including staff salaries), the costs associated with initial exploratory work for organisations seeking to rescue important buildings and monuments, and capital costs.

Applications can be made at any time.
