Since 1994 we have awarded over £1.8bn to 11,000 projects across the North.

The birthplace of the industrial revolution, the North of England is  buzzing with thousands of years of history.

We're proud to support our communities to protect and celebrate the region’s irreplaceable heritage, from the cityscapes of Manchester to the stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales, the cultural history of Liverpool, through to the Lake District's natural beauty. 

Take a look below at some of the projects we have funded.
