This year, the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) launched its new Strategy for 2023-28 and also a three-year programme funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which is focused on supporting Heritage Development Trusts (HDT). This £5 million programme represents an expansion of a three-year pilot carried out from 2019-23, and will support up to 13 HDTs operating in locations of need and potential across the UK.
This programme of investment is intended to improve organisational resilience and increase the ability of the beneficiary organisations to acquire and maintain heritage assets in the long term for social and economic benefit within their communities.
The AHF is pleased to announce that it is now seeking to commission a consultant, or consultancy, to work with us over three years commencing January 2024 to help promote to national and regional media outlets the HDT programme and its model – particularly around sharing emerging lessons and impact – as well as the AHF and its broader work.
