Got an opinion on heritage?

05th August 2022


The National Lottery Heritage Fund is asking for views from the heritage sector and the public to help shape its new 10-year strategy, reviewing the vision set out in its 2019 Strategic Funding Framework.

The Heritage Fund is encouraging people working or interested in heritage to give their views on the changes to heritage they want to see in the next decade, the role the Heritage Fund can play in that change, and if there are particular heritage challenges or projects that should be considered.

Eilish McGuinness, Chief Executive, said:

“Collectively we have battled unprecedented times brought by the pandemic, and we are still dealing with the longer-term effects, compounded by the economic and environmental crises.

“It feels the right time to check our purpose and ask whether our priorities and investment approach are the right ones for heritage and people for the future. We want everyone to help us shape how we’ll work together in the years ahead.”

Over the past 27 years, the Heritage Fund has invested in tens of thousands of heritage projects and have supported a wide range of our cathedral projects. All this through money raised by National Lottery players, and more recently, also on behalf of governments.

These projects stretch the length and breadth of the UK, and encompass the richness and variety of heritage itself, from historic buildings, our industrial legacy and the natural environment, to collections, traditions, stories and more.
