From Belfast’s rich industrial and maritime heritage, to luscious landscapes and parks, to museums bursting with the stories of local people, Northern Ireland has it all.
We’re proud to play a role in protecting and celebrating Northern Ireland’s diverse heritage. Explore just some of the organisations and communities we have supported below.
We are fully operational and open for business, but we are conducting much of our day-to-day business from our home offices.
