The AHF appreciates that neglected buildings which are all too familiar in our towns, cities and countryside can, with a little imagination and a lot of enthusiasm, be rescued to become assets for their communities by people wanting to make a difference. The AHF has helped hundreds of organisations throughout the UK to do exactly that.

The Former Birmingham Municipal School of Art, a magnificent 1899 Grade II* building by architect William Bidlake, has just secured a major grant of £1.7m from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The building, which is part of an exceptional group of listed buildings along the Moseley Road in Birmingham, has been on Historic England’s “At Risk" Register for over twenty years.  Purchased in poor repair from the City Council in 1984, the owners Moseley Muslim Community Association struggled to secure the funding to repair the buildings until the intervention of the Architectural Heritage Fund, who provided advice, support and grants.

Javed Arain, Chair of the Moseley Muslim Community Association said,  “ We are delighted that we have received the grants from HLF and Historic England for the restoration and refurbishment of this important building.  This will help us create a hub to meet the diverse needs of the local community.  The advice and support from the AHF in the early stages was invaluable.”
