  9. 9. learning… conservation… Heritage can be all of those things… but it can also be… enjoying getting involved…
  10. 10. What is a “project”? We see a “project” as work or activity that: is not part of the everyday work of your organisation and has a time limit for when it should be carried out; and has specific aims. We give priority to applications from not-for-profit organisations. This can include charitable or voluntary groups, a Local Authority (including town or parish councils), and schools etc.
  11. 11. We can fund capital work such as restoring an old bus, refitting a museum display or conserving an archive. We can pay revenue costs, such as new staff to help deliver a project. We can pay for volunteer training and activities and events that help the community to get involved. A project may typically last for three years but could be anything from six months to five years.
  12. 12. outcomes Heritage Lottery has moved away from ‘criteria’; instead, we want applicants to focus on the ‘outcomes’ of the project. The outcomes are the difference you will make with Lottery money. To help applicants, we have created a menu of 14 outcomes. Bushey Rose Garden, £942,000
