National Lottery Heritage Fund: Heritage Innovation Fund

Deadline 27th September 2022

The Heritage Innovation Fund is a pilot initiative for experimenters, collaborators and learners from across all parts of heritage in the UK.

Funding is intended to build innovation capacity within, across and between different parts of heritage around a shared priority challenge area: the workforce, skills and ways of working needed for the future.

The Fund is intended to involve three phases:

  • Phase 1: Explore – for organisations at the early ideas stage.
  • Phase 2: Test – will offer support to put promising prototypes and ideas into practice to gather evidence of what works.
  • Phase 3: Grow – will offer support to implement findings more widely and share good practice the sector.

Grants of up to £25,000 are available for six months of working.
