Returning CEO, Ros Kerslake, announces new strand to the Heritage Emergency Fund 

It is with great pleasure that the sector welcomes Ros Kerslake back to the Heritage Fund after her period of absence battling Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. On only her second day back in post, she announced yesterday a new tranche of Covid19 emergency funding.

Within the current £50m Heritage Emergency Fund, the Heritage Fund is creating a new grant range of £50,000–£250,000. It will be open to past and current grantees.

This new strand will help them:

  • respond to exceptional cases of larger-scale need
  • protect heritage at severe immediate risk
  • and, crucially, safeguard the heritage that can play a key role in the UK’s economic and community regeneration from the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19)

They are currently developing the detail for how to apply for these new grants in the coming week and will actively communicate this when applications are open.

Keep an eye on social media @TricolorAssocs for updates.
