The strain on Scotland’s heritage sector due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is immense.
We are working as hard as we can, using all of our resources, to help heritage projects navigate their way through this operational crisis and consolidate their recovery .
We are listening and we’re here to help.
Grants for Heritage
Our support includes a phased reopening of project funding through our National Lottery Grants for Heritage.
From 25 November 2020 - we will resume accepting applications for grants from £3,000-£10,000 and £10,000-£100,000.
From 8 February 2021 - we will resume accepting applications for grants from £100,000-£250,000 and £250,000-£5m.
Further details can be found in the blog from our CEO, Ros Kerslake.
We are fully operational and open for business, but we are conducting much of our day-to-day business remotely.
This means we are unable to access our post. In the interim, please send any items via email to your contact or via: email@example.com.
