  16. Shaping the future

  17. “Although repair, restoration and conservation of the historic fabric and fittings of places of worship must be a priority, there should be a requirement that greater community use is explored and therefore provision made to increase facilities. As mentioned above if this section was renamed something such as 'historic religious buildings' it may get greater public support.” (Trustee, Historic Buildings and Monuments, Community/ Voluntary) “Preserving significant buildings while increasing their community use and involvement is an excellent idea. Applications should be able to demonstrate that buildings are not just used once a week, but provide a resource for the local community.” (Head of Heritage Services, Local Authority)

  18. Next steps • New strategy for 2013-2019 published April 2012 • Customer information on changes to policies and programmes available from April 2012 • Autumn and winter 2012 – new programmes open to applications • April 2013 – first awards under the new programmes

  19. Repair Grants for Places of Worship 2013-19 Conservation focused Allowance for modest new works/facilities Demonstrate broadening of community use OR engagement Greater focus on financial sustainability
