The National Lottery Grants for Heritage provide funding for all types of projects with grants from £3,000 upwards. They fund a broad range of projects that connect people and communities to the national, regional and local heritage of the UK.

They provide different levels of funding to heritage of all shapes and sizes. Their grants range from £3,000 up to millions of pounds.

This year, The National Lottery Heritage Fund has changed their focus and is particularly interested in projects concerning landscape and nature and community heritage.

Their communities of focus are disabled people, young people, Black and ethnic minority communities, LGBT + and people from lower socio –economic backgrounds.  

In addition, they are looking for applications from organisations who have never applied to them before.

However, as usual they still welcome applications from heritage projects that could include:

  • Nature;
  • Designed landscapes;
  • Landscapes and the countryside;
  • Oral history;
  • Cultural traditions;
  • Community archaeology;
  • Historic buildings, monuments and the historic environment;
  • Museums, libraries and archives;
  • Acquiring new objects;
  • Commemorations and celebrations;
  • Industrial, maritime and transport. 


The money you get for your project can be used for:

  • Repairs and conservation;
  • Digital outputs - this could be digital images, sound files or data, a website with heritage material, an app, or a film made using digital technology;
  • New staff posts - this could include part of a current employees’ role, if they were dedicating a specific amount of time to the project;
  • Paid training placements - this could also include training for existing staff, to support the aims of the project;
    Professional fees - includes anyone related to your project in a professional capacity, from architects and heritage professionals to teaching staff.
