  1. Michael Murray Development Manager – London Heritage Lottery Fund

  2. HLF has £402.5 million to spend in 2013/14, £375 m in 2014/15 Collecting Cultures launched £5 million available to MLA sector; Grants between £50,000 - £500,000; Application deadline 2 May The Black Gardener Garden Museum £60,000

  3. What can weaken museum projects? • Under-estimating resources required to develop and complete the project • Development phase too short to achieve ambitious fundraising targets • Insufficient staff resources during development phase. Projects under-estimate time required for project management and fundraising/project oversight – generally two separate roles. • Insufficient contingency for historic building conservation, or insufficient survey work (e.g. Honeywood) • Planning for sustainability • How will you encourage people to come back after first visit/first year? • On-going funding (e.g. commitments from local authority, ACE) • Governance issues • Business planning

  4. What can weaken museum projects? 3. Insufficient consultation • Planning permission • EH and amenity societies • Not embedded with wider community, voluntary sector (e.g. volunteer recruitment, partnerships with non-heritage organisations)

  5. What can weaken museum projects? 4. Other issues • Impact of changes in staff on project development and design (e.g. new curator with different ideas on interpretation) • Lack of ambition related to new audiences development, capital or activity programmes • Not considering the wider museum context (e.g. external landscaping) • Unsatisfactory building design • Poor accessibility • Insufficient digital infrastructure and licences • Insufficient information on significance of the collection • Budgeting errors/value for money

  6. How do we assess applications? • Heritage importance • Need or opportunity • Why now / why lottery funding? • What outcomes will the project achieve? • Value for money • Project well planned? • Financially realistic? • Sustainability

  7. How can the development team help? Provide advice and support before you apply Project enquiry form/ expression of interest forms available on our website

  8. Project enquiry stage – some common themes: • Uncertainty about HLF grant process, confusion about timescales • Focus on the ‘physical’ and people can be neglected • Lack of overall strategy and why this project should happen now • Speak to the sector, those who’ve been through a similar process • Capacity of the organisation to deliver project, and sustainability in the long term, and being realistic • Not reading HLF’s guidance!
