The Heritage Funding Directory is a free website showcasing financial support for UK related heritage projects. The Heritage Alliance and The Architectural Heritage Fund combined their funding directories in 2017 to provide around 400 updated listings detailing sources of grants, loan finance, awards, scholarships and other ‘in kind’ resources.

Friend of the Alliance, Kate Pugh, also created a new list of around 100 grants and funding sources that are available for heritage projects outside of the UK in the International Funding Directory .

The high-level Historic Environment Forum (HEF) brings together senior members of staff from public and non-government bodies to work collaboratively on strategic matters for the historic environment sector. The work of the Forum is driven by a Strategic Framework for Collaborative Action (2020-25), whose outcomes are delivered through time limited ‘Task & Finish’ groups, open to contributions beyond HEF membership.

From 2014 to 2020, HEF provided the basis for effective collaboration through the programme Heritage 2020, which worked on five strategic areas: discovery, identification and understanding; constructive conservation and sustainable management; public engagement; capacity building; and ‘helping things to happen’.
