Heritage Lottery Fund Scotland – Workshop at Project Ability
May 17th 2018, 1.30 – 2.30 pm
Project Ability is hosting a workshop with the Heritage Lottery Fund, Scotland. We are inviting local groups to join a brief workshop on Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Funding.
HLF receives fewer funding applications from minority ethnic and cultural communities, disabled people and young people (15 – 25) and want to help more of these groups to celebrate their Heritage.
“I understand this may seem remote from your work but you don’t have to be a heritage organisation to apply to us. If your focus is community or culture, health or sport getting involved in a heritage project brings many benefits. Projects that explore cultures and memories can bring people closer together. Heritage focussed projects can include valuable training and learning. Getting out, meeting others and actively engaging with a heritage project also contributes to health and wellbeing.
HLF support all kinds of projects, as long as they make a lasting difference for heritage, people and communities. Projects include capturing people’s, memories of a particular event or daily life: researching people and places or
looking after natural habitats and buildings. You may look at a story that is central to your organisation or bring people together to explore a new topic. Take a look at what we fund at hlf.org.uk to get an idea of the wide ranging projects we support.”
The workshop will last about an hour and is a chance to hear directly from the HLF staff about the HLF programmes, outcomes and process and discuss potential heritage projects.
Project Ability is currently working on a HLF Funded project in partnership with people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire on their memories of living in Ladysbridge Hospital, Banff (an institution for people with learning disabilities) in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. www.ladysbridgestories.com
The workshop will take place in our studio in Trongate 103, Glasgow, G1 5HD
