Limited spaces remaining on our upcoming training:


Project Grants

Whilst your Museum or Heritage organisation may not have considered the recent Emergency and Recovery funding suitable, it is worth taking a moment to revisit the relaunched Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants.

Changes to Project Grants made in July, along with a new Information Sheet provide further guidance on how your project may fit this funding.

We have written a news post on our website to highlight the main changes to the funding scheme (including the temporary removal of the match funding requirement) and the key points to consider ahead of applying.
