Architectural Heritage Fund Annual Review 2019-20
Menu closed Menu open

The coming year is likely to be extremely busy for the organisation as it adjusts to the new environment and deals with the ongoing consequences of COVID-19. It will be important that the Annual Plans over the next few years remain flexible to accommodate what are likely to remain very volatile environments for the sector and country as a whole. We are, however, in the advantageous position of having agreed funding programmes for the majority of our 2020-23 strategy and our focus will remain on the delivery of these. Despite the volatility, we know the aims of our strategy remain relevant post-COVID-19.

The Next 18 Months
