The Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund was launched in December 2014 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The fund was to be used for grants of between £10,000 and £100,000 to listed places of worship of all faiths and denominations where the repair of roof and rainwater goods was both urgent and necessary. NHMF was asked to administer the fund by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
The total value of the fund was £55million and it generated significant interest from places of worship across the UK. Over 2,400 applications were received across two application deadlines (in January 2015 and February 2016) and over 900 offers of grants were made. The programme was successfully concluded in summer 2018. All the projects have been completed and the programme has been closed. Information on the successful applicants and the evaluation report for the programme can be found here.
Any queries on the programme can be sent to Enquiries@nhmf.org.uk.
