On 21st September, trustees and staff of the Architectural Heritage Fund met in Cardiff for the first in-person Grants Panel since 2019. Hosted at Cornerstone, an historic city-centre church adapted into an elegant events space, the Panel awarded 15 new grants: seven from the ‘Transforming Places through Heritage Programme’ in England, totalling £416,285, one in Scotland of £30,000, and seven in Wales with a sum of £200,284.
The overall total of grants awarded in the meeting was £646,569. For a full list, see our latest Grant Offers.
The meeting’s location was particularly appropriate giving that the Panel was considering the first batch of awards in a new capital grants programme in Wales generously funded by Cadw, the Welsh Government’s Historic Environment Division. As part of this programme, grants are available for charities and social enterprises seeking support for repair, restoration, and emergency works for their projects.
