The National Lottery Heritage Fund has made £50 million available for a Heritage Emergency Fund to support the UK heritage sector as an immediate response to the COVID-19 crisis. The £50 million is providing short-term funding for organisations delivering heritage projects or running previously funded projects, and safeguarding heritage sites we have previously invested to ensure they are not lost to the public. Other elements of the Heritage Emergency Fund are currently under development and may include innovative financing mechanisms to support organisations. See the Fund's website for up to date details.

We now want to evaluate this Funding and the impact of COVID-19 for the sector to inform our future practice. The evaluation will also support The Fund to communicate the impact of the Heritage Emergency Fund and our broader role in responding to the Coronavirus pandemic.
