Cultural Protection Fund

In partnership with the Department for Culture Media and Sport Opens in a new tab or window., the British Council has launched a new £30 million fund to help to create sustainable opportunities for economic and social development through building capacity to foster, safeguard and promote cultural heritage affected by conflict overseas.

The Fund aims to protect and preserve physical monuments and religious sites, as well as 'intangible' heritage: inherited traditions, beliefs and cultural identity, passed down through generations – all of which have been increasingly under threat in the Middle East and North Africa as so-called Islamic State have gained power in the region.

We are now accepting applications for small grants (up to £100k) and large grants (more than £100k):

There are separate application processes for small grants (up to £100K) and large grants (more than £100K). For large grants there will be two rounds of funding per financial year, and small grants will run on a rolling basis with quarterly decision meetings.

All applicants will be asked to complete an online expression of interest form in order to confirm eligibility, before being invited to complete an online application form.

In the current round, organisations can apply for grants of up to £2 million for projects focussing on the protection of cultural heritage at risk due to conflict. The maximum amount of funding available to applicants will be subject to review at the end of each funding round.
