Operating as a charity, we offer very competitive rates and welcome enquiries from individuals, groups and organisations looking for paid support for the following:
Heritage Lottery Funded Schemes
Whether you are at early concept stage, entering development stage or looking for support in terms of project management, stakeholder involvement, community engagement or feasibility studies, we can help. We have significant experience supporting groups with writing business plans, activity plans and guiding them through the application process.
Feasibility Studies/Options Appraisals
Historic properties that were originally built for a specific purpose can reach a stage where they can no longer be used for that particular reason. Often Listed by Historic England and therefore protected from redevelopment or significant alterations, they can become empty and neglected. Heritage Lincolnshire has a significant track record of finding viable alternative uses for these buildings that are often local landmarks and extremely important within their community.
Any project idea needs to start with the people that the finished product is meant for! At the heart of Heritage Lincolnshire’s ethos as a heritage education charity is the importance and value of involving the community as early as possible. We are skilled in working with local groups and bringing partners together to evolve initial concepts into exciting possibilities! Our specialisms also extend to working with under-represented audiences within the heritage sector including young people, BAME groups, people with disabilities and older people.
Good interpretation is the key to understanding and appreciating any historic resource. Heritage Lincolnshire can offer advice to determine the most appropriate type of interpretation for your heritage asset and can undertake all research, presentation and production. Our specialisms include graphic design and desktop publishing which can be used to produce materials including leaflets, books, pop-up banners, boards, panels – and much more!
Events Management/Activity Coordination
If you need some help and support in running a heritage activity or event, Heritage Lincolnshire has a wealth of experience we can offer. Themed talks, guided walks, family friendly activities, event programmes – the list is endless!
We have a fully operational archaeological team that can undertake a full range of heritage consultancy and archaeological fieldwork. Our staff members are particularly skilled at working with community groups, providing support and training for all types of archaeological work including taster sessions, pottery identification workshops, fieldwalking and excavation. For a full list of services, see Archaeological Project Services.
Our staff collectively have a broad range of knowledge and specialisms plus a large number of contacts. Even if we’re unable to help you directly, we usually know someone who can.
