Smaller grants making a big difference for Scottish communities
With grants ranging from £10,000 to just over £200,000, the six projects support a range of heritage – from nature and archives to culture and memories.
Caroline Clark, Director for Scotland at the Heritage Fund said: “There’s a real diversity within these six projects, but one thing they all have in common is they each started with a strong idea that is now able to make a real impact with support from the Heritage Fund.”
We hope they will inspire more people to develop project ideas and apply for funding.
Heritage Fund grants start from £3,000 – that cash can be enough to turn an idea into reality by providing the funding a project needs.
