The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has committed £678million across Scotland to more than 3,500 heritage projects which have supported and contributed to communities, regeneration, tourism and the economy and which have helped to look after and open up our heritage for everyone to enjoy.
The National Lottery is helping people across the UK explore the First World War during the Centenary. We’ve funded over 2,000 projects, enabling 9.4 million people take part so far and we’ll be sharing 100 fascinating, moving, and in some cases, lesser-known stories of the First World War and its Centenary from now until the Centenary of Armistice on 11th November.
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), in partnership with the Library of Birmingham and Perry Common Library, are holding an event that will bring together community groups, individuals and heritage professionals, to discuss, learn and share, and to contribute to building a more cohesive city.
Many of the UK’s heritage buildings – around two-thirds – are in private ownership and, it is estimated, a similar proportion of the landscape associated with them. HLF is able to assist by providing a range of grants to help secure the future of these, in many cases, rare and fascinating structures, artefacts or artworks.
