Heritage Is for Everyone
Heritage Lottery Fund
Information Event for Equalities Groups
Thursday 28th January 2016 10am – 2pm
Voluntary Action Swindon
Voluntary Action Swindon are working with Heritage Lottery Fund to host an HLF Information Event for equalities groups.
HLF funds a wide range of projects from £3000 that actively involve people in heritage. This can include, amongst other things: cultural traditions; histories of people, communities, places or events; languages and dialects; people’s memories and experiences.
HLF is keen to support the development of projects 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 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.
Angie McTiernan, a HLF Development Officer will unpack the HLF:
- Definition of heritage
- Application and assessment process
- Application dos and don’ts
- Project outcomes
There will be a practical exercise, an opportunity to ask questions, discuss potential projects and meet other groups.
After lunch there will be:
A limited number of 1:1 HLF surgeries for groups to discuss your heritage project ideas. 1:1 surgery slots need to be booked in advance; please email Angela.McTiernan@hlf.org.uk by Friday January 8th 2016, with a contact phone number and a brief description of your heritage project idea.
