Historic England Announces Grants to Celebrate Working Class Histories

Funding to improve understanding and awareness of overlooked historic places and stories across England.

Community and heritage organisations can apply for grants of up to £25,000 for projects which engage with a wide range of heritage and enable people to creatively share overlooked or untold stories of their communities.

Historic England is delivering the Everyday Grants: Celebrating Working Class Histories programme as part of its Diversity and Inclusion strategy, published in 2020, which outlines its commitment to helping the heritage sector become more inclusive.

Grants could be used to celebrate aspects of diverse heritage including:

  • Local industry such as railways, mines and factories.
  • The working-class history of coastal and rural towns.
  • Local architecture.

Activities should provide innovative volunteering opportunities for young people or people facing loneliness or isolation, as well as contribute positively to participants’ wellbeing.

The fund will open on 23 February 2022 and close on 23 May 2022.
