The scheme will be aimed at small projects which will conserve, enhance, celebrate, and increase the understanding of the natural, cultural, and built heritage offering within the North Isles.
Sometimes a small amount of money can enable a project to go ahead which can be of great benefit to many people in a community. This project would provide a ring-fenced fund to be made available to local groups as a small grants scheme, offering grants of £200 - £2,000. The grants would be aimed at projects which complement the objectives of NILPS and allow small-scale initiatives to be taken forward and delivered at a local level.
The small grants scheme will help enable local communities to make decisions about their heritage. It will also allow the delivery of projects and initiatives which allow communities and individuals to increase their knowledge and understanding of the North Isles landscape and its associated heritage.
