  • HLF is a lottery distributor Award grants from pot of ‘good causes’ – of £1 ticket, 28p goes to this – HLF 4.5p With BIG lottery (they get 14p of 28p) then shared between HLF, Arts Council & Sports England Biggest funder of heritage – have awarded £4.4 billion since 1994, £205m per year to invest this year, increasing next year
  • HLF is interested in conserving the natural heritage of the UK by funding biodiversity. This could be in ancient forests, chalk grassland, wetlands or marshes, rivers, cemeteries or public parks or gardens. It could also be on land next to these public areas, even in in private hands if public access could be negotiated. There are three main ways in which biodiversity can be part of an HLF-funded project: Projects conserving habitats and species Projects focusing on biological information and improving understanding of natural heritage Biodiversity as part of a wider conservation project (park, historic building, landscape)
  • Percentages? Gov share – why and what for?
  • Take off %
  • Overall, £416m has been awarded through over 2,785 projects for support of the UK's natural heritage £171m has been awarded for over 935 projects benefiting the UK countryside £284m has been awarded to help sustain over 2,300 nature conservation projects in the UK. This sum includes £185m for over 1,855 biodiversity projects, and £91m for over 410 land acquisition projects Over 70,203 hectares has been bought and restored through HLF funding (equal to about 87,000 football pitches) that will help to safeguard and enhance key habitats and support a number of rare species Our support for habitat conservation and restoration has contributed to significantly to the UK Biodiversity Action Plan targets, such as 64% of the chalk grassland expansion target and 66% of Fenland conservation and restoration targets £41m has been granted to our most important protected landscapes, through 120 projects benefiting National Parks and AONBs. Taken separately, AONBs benefited from £22.3m for 43 projects, and National Parks benefited from £18.8m for 77 projects £68m has been awarded through our targeted programmes to 49 landscape partnership schemes contributing to rural regeneration through integrated heritage conservation.
  • Conservation and activity projects tend to be funded under our Heritage Grants and Your Heritage schemes, as well as one of our targeted programmes, Landscape Partnerships programmes. There is no reason, however, that biodiversity could not be the focus of a Young Roots project.
