Heritage Emergency Fund Evaluation

The National Lottery Heritage Fund

Contract value : up to £75,000 inc VAT

Contract duration : 5 months

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has made £50 million available for a Heritage Emergency Fund to support the UK heritage sector as an immediate response to the COVID-19 crisis.  The £50 million is providing short-term funding for organisations delivering heritage projects or running previously funded projects, and safeguarding heritage sites we have previously invested in to ensure they are not lost to the public.  Other elements of the Heritage Emergency Fund are currently under development and may include innovative financing mechanisms to support organisations.  See the Fund’s website for up-to-date details.

We now need to evaluate this funding and the impact of COVID-19 for the sector to inform future practice.  The evaluation will also support The Fund to communicate the impact of the Heritage Emergency Fund and our broader role in responding to the Coronavirus pandemic.  Further details are available here
