PLEASE NOTE: This is an LCVS event, so although Wirral groups are welcome to book, priority will be given to LCVS groups but if there are places remaining then these will be allocated to organisations from other parts of Merseyside on a first come first served basis.
Thursday 14 July 2016, 2-4pm (advice surgeries 3-4pm) – Rice Lane City Farm, Rawcliffe Road, Liverpool, L9 1AW.
Did you know the Heritage Lottery Fund offers a range of different funding programmes with grants from £3,000 to over £5million? This is just one of the fascinating facts that you will pick up at this event.
LCVS has joined forces with the Heritage Lottery Fund and Rice Lane City Farm to organise a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) briefing and mini-advice surgery session in Walton. The session will include a presentation, case studies and Q&A as well as a chance to receive some one-to-one advice.
The session is aimed at community and arts organisations in Merseyside who are interested in the Heritage Lottery Fund and want to find out more about the funding programmes that are available.
And if you think heritage does not relate to your work, think again. Heritage is broader than you think and includes archaeology, the natural environment, memories, cultures, places and identity. You might be surprised by the range of groups that have run heritage projects. Go to the Heritage Lottery website to see some example of funded projects.
This session will act as an introduction to the Heritage Lottery Fund, covering the different funding streams and programmes available, highlighting how heritage and the work you do can work together. There will be an opportunity to ask any questions and hear examples of previous successful Heritage Lottery Fund funded projects. There will also be an opportunity to take up a mini one-to-one advice session at the end of the briefing.
Places for the briefing and advice sessions are reserved on a first come first served basis and must be booked in advance. This event is free for community groups in Merseyside. If you want to book your place at the briefing or a mini advice surgery appointment (maximum 10 minutes), please contact us.
You are also invited by Rice Lane City Farm to arrive early (1pm) in order to take a tour of the (working) farm and the features of historical interest. If you have not been to the attraction before (and even if you have) it is well worth a visit.
