Historic Environment Scotland


Funding for projects and activities relating to Scotland’s historic environment. While the programme is open to all people and organisations to apply, it is our expectation that we will mainly support not-for-profit organisations. Private owners or commercial organisations are unlikely to be a priority for support unless they can demonstrate that the wider benefits to the public to be delivered from the project would significantly outweigh the private gain.

Historic England


We give grants towards the repair and conservation of listed buildings, scheduled monuments and registered parks and gardens. This includes project development actions which enable repair or improved future management. Our grants under this scheme are intended to reduce the risk faced by some of the most significant historic sites in England, as shown on the Heritage at Risk Register. We focus our grants on those sites which are most in need of repair and where, without our grant, a project would not be able to go ahead.

The Pilgrim Trust


We help fund the preservation and repair of historic buildings, structures and architectural features. We give special consideration to those helping find sustainable solutions for the conservation and re-use of historic buildings – especially those at risk and of outstanding importance.

Historic Houses Foundation (England + Wales)


The Historic Houses Foundation gives grants for the repair and conservation of rural historic buildings and structures in England and Wales, including their gardens, grounds and outbuildings. We also give grants for the restoration and conservation of works of art in historic house collections open to the public. Grants are made to owners (charities, institutions, local authorities and individuals) who demonstrate a sustainable and long-term commitment to the care, management and public access of the historic country houses in their care. 

Heritage Fund


We don’t define heritage. We ask you to tell us what you think is important and should be preserved. From historic buildings, our industrial legacy and the natural environment, to collections, traditions, stories and more –heritage can be anything from the past that you value and want to pass on to future generations.

We also recommend checking with the local Council authority for the area that the property sits in for any local or regionally focused heritage grants available to private owners and companies.
