Do you work with young people and looking for funding? Are you planning a project exploring Scotland's natural heritage?
This workshop is designed for groups and organisations who are thinking about planning a natural heritage project working with young people. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) supports a vast range of natural heritage topics such as citizen science, mapping habitats and species and conservation projects and we are keen to support more projects which reconnect young people with nature. This is an opportunity to meet current HLF funded projects involving young people and to find out the support available when applying to HLF.
The session will include:
- A presentation from the Heritage Lottery Fund on funding available including information on Young Roots and Our Heritage grant programmes
- Talks from two Young Roots projects - RSPB Scotland and Green Aspirations Scotland
- A presentation from Scottish Wildlife Trust about their Our Heritage project - Engaging communities to enhance urban greenspaces in Cumbernauld
- Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) will also give a presentation about the Green Infrastructure
Community Engagement Fund http://www.greeninfrastructurescotland.org.uk/
- Q&A session
- Opportunity to speak to the Development team at the Heritage Lottery Fund
For further information about the workshop please contact Annie Mottisfont, Development Officer at the Heritage Lottery Fund (Annie.Mottisfont@hlf.org.uk or 0131 240 1586)
We look forward to meeting you!
