Board and committee opportunities
Joining our Board of Trustees or committees can be an exciting and fulfilling experience and also offers a unique personal development opportunity.
HLF has 12 committees based across the UK, supported by our local teams. The committees meet four times a year.
We recruit for our committee members once a year and encourage applications from a wide range of people. We welcome individuals with experience from across the cultural sector as well as those from other relevant backgrounds. A good mix of personalities and skills enables us to better represent the cultural identity and the diverse communities that we serve.
Watch our film to find out what it's like to be an HLF committee member on our YouTube channel.
The role of the committees is primarily to:
- Make decisions on grants from £100,000 to £2million
- Recommend the funding priorities for applications of £2million and above
