445 organisations benefit from £103m Heritage Recovery Fund

445 heritage organisations across England will benefit from £103m worth of funding announced by Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport today (Oct 09).

The funds are being split, with 433 smaller organisations sharing £67m, with 12 larger organisations such as English Heritage sharing £34m between them.

The 12 larger organisations will use their shares to continue construction and maintenance on cherished heritage sites to preserve visitor attractions and protect livelihoods for some of the most vulnerable heritage specialists and contractors in the sector.

With visitor numbers down, the Government has thrown a lifeline to the Cultural Sector by providing this funding, ensuring that England’s heritage is preserved post-Covid.

Grants that can be applied for range from £10k to £1m, with a further £3m being made available at a later date.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said:

“As a nation it is essential that we preserve our heritage and celebrate and learn from our past. This massive support package will protect our shared heritage for future generations, save jobs and help us prepare for a cultural bounce back post Covid.”
