Four projects in Northern Ireland, nine in Scotland and five in Wales. The projects were set to last up to 3 years. The scheme is also being delivered in England, where it is co-funded by Arts Council England. The aim of the GPS is to enable heritage and cultural organisations to make a step-change in how they work together, and with organisations in other sectors, in order for heritage to contribute more to meeting local social and economic objectives.
