Made possible with National Lottery Heritage Fund

The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The largest funder of UK heritage. We believe in the power of heritage to ignite the imagination, offer joy and inspiration, and to build pride in place and connection to the past.

We invest money raised by National Lottery players across the UK, in collaboration with a wide range of statutory bodies, as well as other National Lottery distributors. Our work is made possible thanks to the support of National Lottery players. 

  • As The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we distribute National Lottery grants from £3,000 to £10million and over, funding projects that sustain and transform the UK’s heritage. 
  • As The Heritage Fund, we distribute funding on behalf of the UK and devolved governments to heritage organisations.
  • We provide leadership and support across the heritage sector, and advocate for the value of heritage.
