Heritage is for Everyone: HLF Information event

Gloucestershire VCS Alliance and BSWN are working with Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to host an HLF Information Event for equalities groups and organisations. HLF funds a wide range of projects from £3000 and upwards that actively involve people in heritage. This can include:

  • cultural traditions,
  • histories of people, communities, places or events;
  • languages and dialects;
  • people’s memories and experiences
  • and more!

HLF is keen to support the development of projects which achieve outcomes for people, heritage and communities from groups working with people:

  • with physical, sensory or learning disabilities or mental health issues
  • from black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups, religious groups, Gypsies and Travellers
  • from LGBT communities

This event will tell you more about HLF’s grant schemes Sharing Heritage; First World War: then and now; Young Roots and Our Heritage funding programmes and some of the inspiring projects which equalities groups are running using HLF funding.

Presentations will focus on HLF’s grant schemes and cover:

  • What is heritage?
  • The application and assessment process
  • Application tips
  • Project outcomes

There will be an opportunity to ask questions, meet other groups and discuss potential heritage project ideas. 1:1 HLF surgeries will be available for groups to discuss specific heritage project ideas. These need to be booked in advance.
