Heritage Lottery Fund

I have an overview of all projects within the programme, convene Collecting Cultures cohort meetings and provide support throughout the programme. My other area of work is as Senior Grants Officer for the National Heritage Memorial Fund, this sees a high number of acquisition projects so is a good complement to my Collecting Cultures work.
