Who we are

Using money raised by the National Lottery, we inspire, lead and resource the UK’s heritage to create positive and lasting change for people and communities, now and in the future.

We are the UK’s largest dedicated funder of heritage, having invested over £8bn of lottery funding to more than 46,000 projects across the UK since 1994. From buildings and museums, to natural heritage, cultural traditions and memories, we fund a broad range of projects that connect people and communities.

The Nation and Area Committees assist the Board in awarding National Lottery funds. Meeting four times a year members discuss and make decisions on grants between £250,000 and £5m and provide advice to the Board on UK-wide campaigns.
