Great Place Scheme Open



The Great Place Scheme will fund in areas which are committed to embed heritage and culture as a core part of local plans and decision-making. By strengthening the connections between heritage, civic and community organisations, by involving people, projects will enhance the role that heritage and culture plays in the future of each place participating in the Scheme. In time this will lead to the social and economic benefits that heritage and culture can achieve.

This is a pilot scheme. It will fund activities which can be built on in the future, and whose learning can be shared with other places.

What are the aims of the scheme?

The Great Place Scheme will enable heritage and cultural organisations to make a step-change in how they work together, and with organisations in other sectors, in order for heritage and culture to contribute more to meeting local social and economic objectives.

How much funding is available?

You can apply for between £100,000 and £500,000 for activity to be delivered over a period of up to three years.

The application process has one round only, but you must submit an Expression of Interest before completing an application form.

How to Apply?

In order to apply for this Scheme, you must submit an Expression of Interest by midday 14 August 2017. Please fill in the documents found at: https://www.greatplacescheme.org.uk/wales  and send to wales@hlf.org.uk.

We will contact you by 31 August 2017 to tell you whether or not you are being invited to submit an application. This will be based on whether your proposal is felt to have the most potential to deliver against the Scheme’s outcomes. Proposals encouraged to apply will need to submit a full application by 7 December 2017.
