Heritage Lottery Fund launches Great Place Scheme

With grants of £100,000 to £1million to support applicants in piloting new, more effective ways of collaborating, the Great Place Scheme includes everything from city-wide initiatives to smaller, rural schemes.

The Great Place Scheme will invest in 5 to 10 places across Scotland to achieve the following:

  • Build on existing strengths within the heritage sector in order to maximise its positive social, environmental and economic contribution.
  • Develop partnerships between the heritage sector and place-based initiatives operating in Scotland, so that the contribution of the sector and future potential for greater collaboration is recognised and supported by long-term plans and strategies for the area.

The deadline for Expression of Interest forms for the programme is midday on 8 June 2017.

Full details about the programme and application guidance can be found online https://www.greatplacescheme.org.uk/scotland.
