As discussed in a previous post, there are multiple opportunities for local community groups to obtain grants for heritage-related projects.
As part of the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership we are keen to promote such opportunities, to empower local communities and to assure a sustainable legacy for the area.

people. In fact many funders have actually increased the amount of money that they
have available in recognition of the tough times that the sector is facing
