We need funds for storing our digital video archive. Would this do methinks?

Your Heritage (£3,000 to £50,000)
Your Heritage provides grants of between £3,000 and £50,000 to support projects that relate to the local, regional or national heritage of the UK. We welcome applications that help people to learn about, look after and celebrate heritage in a fun and enjoyable way.

In April 2008 we introduced new application materials and guidance for this programme. During this transitional year we will start assessing applications under this new programme on 1 September 2008 and will give our first decisions within 10 weeks of your application.

Please note: If you are applying for a Your Heritage grant under the old programme, please click here. You can apply using the the old Your Heritage application pack up to 30 June 2008. You will receive a decision by September 2008.

We have three aims which relate to learning, conservation and participation.

To receive a grant your project must:

* help people to learn about their own and other people's heritage.

Your project must also do either or both of the following.

* Conserve the UK's diverse heritage for present and future generations to experience and enjoy.
* Help more people, and a wider range of people, to take an active part in and make decisions about heritage.

Heritage includes many different things from the past that we value and want to pass on to future generations. Heritage projects might include:

people's memories and experiences
histories of people, communities, places and events
cultural traditions
historic buildings and townscapes
archaeological sites
collections of items, archives or other materials
natural and designed landscapes
habitats and species
sites and collections linked to our industrial, maritime and transport history.
