HLF invests in the full breadth of the UK’s heritage, and through our funding we aim to make a lasting difference for heritage and people. This is reflected in the outcomes for heritage, people and communities that underpin our grant-making.
Heritage Grants is HLF’s largest open programme, and funds projects related to any part of the national, regional, or local heritage of the UK – ranging from the conservation of historic buildings, to museum redevelopments, natural heritage and landscape schemes, and community projects.
We wish to conduct an evaluation of the completed Heritage Grants projects funded under HLF’s 4th Strategic Framework (SF4), which began in April 2013 (see: https://www.hlf.org.uk/lasting-difference-heritage-and-people-our-strategy-2013-2018). Under SF4 HLF has awarded over £1.26bn to 662 Heritage Grants, ranging in size from £50,000 to almost £20m. Of these 662 projects, 66 are now complete.
Organisations awarded funding under SF4 were required to submit a self-evaluation of their project work upon completion of the project. When they apply for a grant, we ask applicants to tell us the ‘story’ of their project, by explaining:
• Why they want to do their project – the need or opportunity that exists.
• What they will do – both capital works and activities.
• What difference the project will make for heritage and for people.
In their evaluation, we ask grantees to repeat this exercise, comparing what they hoped or expected their project to achieve with what actually happened. HLF does not prescribe how grantees should carry out their evaluation, though we do outline various evaluation tools in our Evaluation Guidance.
This study will involve a comprehensive review of the self-evaluation reports and the outcomes achieved by 50-60 Heritage Grants projects completed as of September 2018, and which were funded under SF4.
