Get a £3,000–£10,000 grant to help you create a new organisation to look after heritage or engage people with it. They can also support existing groups taking on new responsibilities for heritage.
Start-up Grants can help in the early stages of planning your activities. If your group isn’t formally constituted yet, the funding can help you put in place the governance structure that’s right for you.
If you are further along in your development, it can help explore ways to manage and sustain your heritage in the future. You could research how local people want the heritage to be used, and train group members in relevant skills. You could also use Start-up Grants funding for early scoping work to inform a future application for project funding.
