The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) sustains and transforms a wide range of heritage through innovative investment in projects with a lasting impact on people and places.
As the largest dedicated funder of the UK’s heritage, with around £375million a year to invest in new projects and a considerable body of knowledge, it is also a leading advocate for the value of heritage to modern life. From museums, parks and historic places to archaeology, natural environment and cultural traditions, the Heritage Lottery Fund invests in every part of the UK’s heritage. Since 1994, HLF has supported over 36,500 projects allocating more than £6billion across the UK. This website was built
