Funding Opportunities

Posted on December 1st, by admin in Tales and musings. Comments Off on Funding Opportunities

If you are looking to raise funds for a new project then the following programmes may be able to help:


Grants for World War I interpretation projects

The Heritage Lottery Fund has a £6 million small grants programme to enable communities to mark the centenary of World War I. First World War Now and Then.

Sharing Heritage Fund

Grants between £3,000 and £10,000 are available to help people across the UK explore, conserve and share all aspects of the history and character of their local area.

£10 million to commemorate top British events

Over the next four years the Heritage Lottery Fund will dedicate £10 million to the celebration and commemoration of the nation’s shared history.

Comic Relief has re-launched its UK Grants Programme

Charities registered in the UK and other not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants starting from £10,000 a year for three years. Their grant making strategy is based upon five themes, including ‘stronger communities’ – small grants to locally-based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage. These grants are managed by local community foundations.


If you know of any other relevant heritage or arts funding streams that we could promote on this page then do let us know.
