The National Lottery Heritage Fund awards money from The National Lottery to preserve and transform the heritage of the UK through innovative projects that will make a lasting impact on people and places, and bring heritage to life for generations to come.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund is wholly funded by National Lottery Players and supports projects ranging from restoring natural landscapes to rescuing neglected buildings, from recording diverse community histories to providing life-changing training. Since 1994, the Heritage Fund has supported over 45,000 projects allocating more than £8.1 billion across the UK.

Many of our most famous landmarks, including Stonehenge in Wiltshire, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs in Scotland, the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland and Cardiff Castle in Wales, have benefitted from support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Additionally, thousands of community heritage projects are providing opportunities for people to explore historic buildings, protect the environment, learn new skills, delve into archives and discover untold stories.
