Knowsley Heritage Grants

Knowsley Heritage Grants, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players, will provide community and voluntary organisations operating in Knowsley with a chance to apply for micro-grants to run heritage-themed projects.

These grants, from £250-£3000, will be available to community and voluntary organisations in Knowsley to enable them to design and deliver heritage projects and activities.

It’ll be a very simple application process, with lots of support from the One Knowsley team to develop your ideas and apply for the funding.

It is hoped these grants will help you to upskill, diversify your offer, engage more Knowsley residents in heritage and help you to develop your confidence in including ‘heritage’ in your future offer.

We are starting the roll out of information about this fund through a Launch Webinar on the 23rd June to be followed up shortly afterwards with a shorter webinar.

If you would like to book for our Launch webinar taking place on Wednesday 23rd June 6-7.30 you can do so through Eventbrite

After the launch we will be rolling out Community based workshops, to explore ‘what is heritage?’ and help communities develop their ideas for heritage activities and projects. These will be across the townships of Knowsley in late June and July. If you are interested in attending then please watch this space or email Liz for more information.

We will be advertising these workshops across our social media and newsletters. If you haven’t you can subscribe to our newsletter here

You don’t need to attend a workshop in order to apply for funding.  

How applying for Funding Works
You can either fill out an expression of interest form and return it to Liz or you can call her – Liz will start to complete the Expression of Interest form on your behalf when you call.

After this Liz, our Heritage Engagement officer, will come to you to talk through your ideas and help you with your application. Liz will be able to help you with designing the project, networking, communications, delivery, and evaluation.

The next stage is to formally apply.
Prior to the meeting you’ll receive a 1-2-1 Meeting Preparation Checklist which lists the supporting documentation for you to to bring with you. In the meeting, you will gain feedback based on costs and the proposed work schedule before submitting your final application.
