HLF Strategic Framework 2013-2018

The strategic framework for 2013-2018 sets out plans designed to deliver long term and sustainable benefits in response to the newly emerging needs facing the heritage sector. It responds to the views of over 2,000 organisations and individuals who took part in our consultation.
The framework includes:
• Building organisational resilience through a further round of the Skills for the Future programme, offering development funding and professional mentoring to develop robust projects and introducing start-up grants and transition funding for organisations needing to cope with new challenges
• Kick-starting philanthropy through endowments and smaller grants for capacity building and support for fundraising training
• Stimulating local economic growth with a new Heritage Enterprise scheme designed to fund partnerships – including social and private enterprises – to develop sustainable new uses for the most challenging historic sites
• A further Collecting Cultures initiative in late 2013 to encourage a strategic approach to collection development and acquisition in museums, archives and libraries.
