Everyday Heritage Grants: Celebrating Working Class Histories
Historic England has announced new pilot grants for community-led and people-focused projects that aim to further the nation’s collective understanding of the past.
The Everyday Heritage Grants Scheme: Celebrating Working Class Histories pilot grants will focus on heritage that links people to overlooked historic places, with a particular interest in recognising and celebrating working class histories.
Historic England will look to uncover the stories including that of local railways, mines, and factories alongside coastal and rural towns and local architecture.
Successful applications, from community interest groups, charities and local authorities will receive grants up to £25,000 to fund projects. It is also looking for projects that provide volunteering opportunities for young people or people facing loneliness or isolation, as well as contribute positively to participants’ wellbeing. The closing date for submission of proposals is 23 May 22.
