Small fund for Scotlands Historic Environment

Historic Environment Scotland – Organisation Support Fund | £4,000 | 30 September 2018

Providing financial support to organisations responsible for the operation, management or safeguarding of historic environment assets is a vital part of our wider efforts to safeguard Scotland’s historic environment and promote its understanding and enjoyment.

The Organisational Support Fund can provide financial support to organisations responsible for the operation, management or safeguarding of historic environment assets to assist in the delivery of defined projects/activities and/or to provide resilience funding.

Grant funding for organisations experiencing financial or organisational difficulties. Examples of the challenges that this funding could assist in addressing include:

  • Closing short term financial deficits;
  • Property, plant or equipment required to ensure that public access or engagement with the historic environment can continue in the long-term;
  • Equipment required to pursue identified and quantified business development opportunities; and
  • Addressing organisational capacity issues to respond to existing challenges or new opportunities.

Resilience funding is time limited and we would expect grantees to address the underlying issues that created the need for resilience funding. As with the Project/Activity funding, we would also expect it to relate to HES’s grant outcomes.
