UK Heritage Development Trusts Programme

Posted in Funding

The Heritage Development Trusts capacity building programme is a new three year, £5 million scheme that is being delivered by the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) in partnership with The National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF).

The programme aims to create a UK-wide network of financially resilient organisations that revive unused buildings and support regeneration in some of the country’s most deprived places and communities.

The programme will provide funding and capacity building support to between 10 and 13 Heritage Development Trusts operating in locations of need and potential across the UK, who will join the existing group of 7 Heritage Development Trusts in England supported as part of a pilot initiative between 2020-23.
