Last chance to book! FREE Heritage Lottery Fund one to one advice sessions

The Heritage Lottery Fund has identified Portsmouth Havant and Gosport as a priority development area within South East England. As such, Portsmouth will be one of the districts that will be the focus of additional targeted activity by their development staff who will be doing more to raise awareness about Heritage Lottery Fund programmes and supporting local organisations and groups in making applications for grants. Priority development areas will not receive automatic funding but the aim is to generate a greater number of good quality bids from priority areas which will be able to compete with applications from other places.

In conjunction with Strong Voices, the development team for the South East will be providing free one to one advice sessions to potential applicants in Portsmouth, Havant and Gosport at Portsmouth Guildhall. So if you have a project idea – get in touch!
