‘Our Heritage’ – Small Grants Scheme

What is the ‘Our Heritage’ Small Grants Scheme?

The ‘Our Heritage’ Small Grants Scheme has £100,000 in total earmarked by our Partnership Board to be awarded over the next five years. This scheme seeks projects that support our efforts to ‘connect people to their heritage’ but also support the established programmes of work in the scheme.

The maximum award is £5,000 and applications are open to not-for-profit organisations that can evidence how they will leave a sustainable legacy and align with the principles of the Galloway & Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere (Read more about the Biosphere here).
