Support for accessing Resilient Heritage grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund

The Heritage Lottery Fund is now offering Resilient Heritage grants to organisations in the UK who want to build their capacity, or achieve strategic change to improve the management of heritage.

Action Planning is developing a strategic alliance with Eastside Primetimers, who are able to help organisations apply for these significant grants, which we believe will be enormously helpful to organisations as they seek to strengthen future sustainability.  You can read more about the programme here.

Grants can fund activities to help you acquire new skills or knowledge, or new models of governance, leadership and business. Whether you’re facing challenges around income and fundraising, or considering new initiatives such as social investment, Resilient Heritage can also support these processes.

Eastside Primetimers work exclusively with the not-for-profit sector in each region of England. They have a membership of experienced consultants from senior positions in the sector who together support over 200 organisations a year. To date, they have a high success rate helping to secure funding, strengthen capabilities, develop partnerships and design and innovate projects.

There are two levels of funding available under the Resilient Heritage programme: £3,000-£10,000 and £10,000-£250,000. If you are applying for a grant of £10,000 or more, Eastside Primetimers will invest their own time into writing the application - any delivery work is paid through the grant itself.
