New Partnership launches £1.5m funding initiative for industrial heritage

As reported on the Council for British Archaeology Website

"Independent museums and industrial sites are set to benefit from a new partnership between AIM – The Association of Independent Museums, and Biffa Award, a multi-million pound fund that helps to build communities and transform lives by awarding grants to community and environmental projects across the UK.

The National Heritage Landmarks Partnership Scheme will create a high profile network of interpretation and education projects across the UK, which will showcase the far-reaching changes in industrial development that have shaped our nation’s history.

Biffa Award has pledged a grant of £500,000 per year for three years, to help transform derelict buildings and sites into inspirational resources enabling the public to better understand the powerful tide of change that characterises our industrial past, by creating a network of key projects that tell the stories of people, processes, industrial development and change.

Museums and industrial sites are invited to submit bids for the first (2012) funding round. Applicants will need to be able to demonstrate significant impact and heritage benefit. Up to 4 projects will be selected for partnership funding in each annual round. Further details are available from the AIM website ."
