Historic England Repair Grant (England)

We give grants towards the repair and conservation of listed buildings, scheduled monuments and registered parks and gardens. This includes project development actions which enable repair or improved future management. We focus our grants on those sites which are most in need of repair and where, without our grant, a project would not be able to go ahead.

Historic Environment Grants Programme (Scotland)

Your project can be focused on any aspect of Scotland’s historic environment, from the tangible (e.g. historic buildings, ancient monuments and archaeology, designed or cultural landscapes and historic gardens and battlefields) to the intangible (e.g. historic environment skills, stories and traditions).

You can apply for funding for a project with one or several different component activities. There are no restrictions on how many activities you can apply for, but they must all clearly link to the same main project. If your project does contain different activities and your application is successful, it will not always be the case that we would support all of these, as some may not meet the programme criteria or our priorities.
