Rebuilding Heritage

Heritage sector urged not to miss out on free support and training opportunities

The final round of the Rebuilding Heritage programme, which offers wide-ranging free support and training to organisations and individuals operating in the heritage sector, is closing for applications next week.

Open to applicants ranging from organisations employing hundreds of people right through to sole traders, the National Lottery Heritage Fund-backed initiative offers support in fields such as fundraising, communications, storytelling, staff wellbeing and financial literacy.

Training sessions are offered in a variety of ways, with a blend of one-to-one tutoring and group work available. Applicants can also take a ‘mix and match’ approach, only participating in strands relevant to their work.

The programme is delivered in partnership with a range of leading industry bodies, including Clore Leadership, Chartered Institute of Fundraising, Media Trust and Creative United.

What's on offer?

Applications are open for:

  • 121 Communications support & training follow up
  • 121 Fundraising support
  • Rebuilding Leadership training
  • Managing Wellbeing training
  • Financial Literacy training & 121 follow up
  • *NEW* Organisational Storytelling training

The deadline for applications is 11pm, Tuesday 27th July 2021

With the opportunity for those interested in the scheme only open for a few more days, the programme’s organisers are keen to emphasise that the application process is relatively brief and that sessions will not commence until after the summer rush.

“Because we have a range of support options available – small group training, 121 consultancy, or both together – we have been able to support organisations and businesses from across the whole breadth of the heritage sector,” explains Vanessa Moore, Rebuilding Heritage’s engagement officer.

“We know that it’s very hot! But while many sites are preoccupied with coping with changing covid rules we hope people will spend 30 minutes applying now, to set up their ideal support package for the autumn.”
