Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Consultation
HLF is currently running a consultation on its role, vision and funding priorities for the next five years (2019 – 2024). Comments are invited on the new approach, which could include targeted funding campaigns, repayable loans and public involvement in decision making.
You can take part in the online consultation to give your ideas and thoughts by 22 March 2018
There are two surveys and the first one is aimed more at Friends and Community Groups:
1. Friends groups, volunteers and the general public to take part by clicking on this link
YouGov recommend it comes with the following guidance – for those circulating links to the YouGov survey it’s important to note that when the survey link is clicked on it creates a unique survey URL that can be used only once by the respondent. Please make sure not to copy one of those unique survey URLs from the browser and circulate it because it can be only used once so someone clicking on it would be taken to where it finished rather than starting a new survey.”

We need everyone to have their say on how important our parks and open spaces are to our Natural Heritage.
38 Degrees Campaign
Our public parks and open spaces are much loved and used with an estimated 2.6 billion visitors each year but they are also suffering from severe cuts to parks services made by local authorities as they seek to balance their books.
To make this worse the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) now want to abandon their hugely successful Parks for People programme that invested millions of peoples lottery money into improving parks and local facilities.
Heritage Lottery Fund are currently consulting on this change in funding so help us to convince them to rethink and keep this precious funding so our parks can be protected and continue to be enjoyed by everyone. We’ll be handing in the petition to the consultation before it closes on March 22nd.
