Since 1976, the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) has supported nearly 2000 historic building reuse projects across the UK, through £90m of loan offers and £33m of grants invested in the community-led regeneration of historic buildings and places.
Today, the AHF is really pleased to announce the launch of its 2023-28 Strategy, which sets out its mission, values and priorities, and describes its strategic aims for the next five years, including its 50th anniversary in 2026.
Ros Kerslake CBE, Chair of the AHF, said:
‘I am delighted to announce the publication of AHF’s new 2023-28 Strategy. Since being appointed as Chair I have seen at close hand the impact the funding and advice we provide has on projects - for example John O Groats Mill in Scotland shows how critical our early stage funding is. The Heritage Impact Fund demonstrates the value of pooling finance from multiple funding bodies in a way that makes it accessible. Our new Strategy focuses on our core objectives but also addresses new, pressing, challenges and needs. We look forward to working with existing and new charities and social enterprises in taking forward projects and with a wide range of partners to deliver the exciting ambitions set out in the strategy.’
