Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees

The National Lottery Heritage Fund is governed by our Board of Trustees. We currently have 14 trustees.

Our trustees lead strategic development and make decisions on grant requests over £2million. They also decide on applications under grant programmes focusing on historic parks, landscapes and townscapes.

Trustees are appointed, following open advertisement, by the Prime Minister to the board of our parent body the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF). Their decisions are independent.

On a day-to-day basis, the organisation is managed by the executive team.
