Composite showing several projects in Scotland



Welcome to the Scotland team. We have the privilege of supporting people and communities across the country to explore, conserve and celebrate the heritage that’s important to them.

Since 1994, we have awarded over £860million to Scotland's heritage.

More than 4,500 heritage projects have used our funding to tackle wider issues such as wellbeing, community-building and skills development. And each year hundreds benefit from our funding, from young people building bat boxes to the opening of world-class museums.

The Year of Coast & Waters 2020

This year, to mark the Year of Coast & Waters 2020, we’re particularly keen to hear from groups who want to explore and protect our coastlines and inland waterways.

These beautiful places have shaped our history, influenced our culture, and provide a home to our native plants and marine wildlife.

Our funding

Our funding is open to all types of community groups and charity organisations. You don’t need to be a heritage organisation to apply. Our grants start from £3,000.
