Our Heritage Fund consultants are known for their hands-on practical approach to heritage fundraising assignments. This includes writing the business plan to developing the delivery phase application. If your charity simply requires advice and support in developing your National Lottery Heritage Fund proposal, we can support you with that too.
Our Heritage Fund Experience – Supporting some of the most famous buildings in the UK
We have experience of running complex capital fundraising campaigns that require millions, to much smaller, but equally important capital projects. Our consultants have worked on many of the country’s most important and well known buildings. These include Bletchley Park, home of the Enigma Codebreakers that helped shorten WW2. We are also supporting building projects at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home to the iconic Chelsea Pensioners and a Christopher Wren Grade 1 listed masterpiece.
What’s Important to us – Access For Everyone
Our passion is ensuring the rich heritage that belongs to us all is accessed by us all. Inclusivity is a key trait running through all that we do at Abbey Solutions. We know there are people in our communities who do not access historic buildings, museums and other heritage sites because they feel, its “not for them”. The irony of course, is that many of them are the ones that buy lottery tickets and that enables heritage funding to happen in the first place.
The National Lottery recognises this and has emphasized the importance of developing a business plan that has a robust strategy to engage with people from all backgrounds and socio-economic groups within the local communities and beyond. They want to see that engagement is really taking place and isn’t just a box ticking exercise.
