Welcome to the Funds for Historic Buildings Website

The Funds for Historic Buildings website is a comprehensive guide to funding for anyone seeking to repair, restore or convert for a new use any historic building in the United Kingdom (excluding the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) which is listed, scheduled or in a conservation area and of acknowledged historic merit. It includes details of virtually all substantive funding sources which specialise in historic buildings, as well as many which provide funding for historic building projects within a wider remit.

Access to this website is free of charge to all users and allows you to search for a specific funding source, or for sources which are relevant to your project. It also gives useful advice on how to maximise your chances of success when making funding applications.

How it works

The Search section (see right) accesses detailed information on the funding sources which constitute the core of the database underlying this website.

The Funding Advice section contains helpful general information on seeking funding. Users are particularly recommended to read the note entitled "Fundraising from Individuals and Companies".

The Links section provides website addresses for a number of bodies likely to be of particular interest to those involved in the repair and restoration of historic buildings.

The AHF gratefully acknowledges partial funding for this project from English Heritage, CADW, Historic Scotland and Northern Ireland Environment Agency
