The North East is a region where heritage is strong and the sense of identity of people and place is intrinsically linked. The region is a region of contrasts and contradictions united by its people and places. We are keen to work together with local and regional groups to develop projects that will give people a better opportunity to learn about, experience and look after their heritage.
We have identified priority areas and groups that have benefitted less from our funding in the past. Our four priority areas are listed in the green column to the right. We are also keen to hear from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups or organisations which support BAME communities.
If you are developing a heritage project we want to talk to you. Please read the Talk to us section for further information about how we can help you.
