  • William Grant Foundation - Tailored Support Fund (TSF)

    Created: 21/04/2021

    Thanks to funding from the William Grant Foundation, projects in Scotland may be eligible able to apply to the Tailored Support Fund. This is intended to help organisations and projects that may not fit well within the criteria for other Architectural Heritage Fund grant programmes.

    Projects applying to this fund will generally be characterised by:

    • a strong community-led ethos
    • a desire to give new purpose to a building valued locally for its architectural heritage
    • plans that demonstrate strong social, economic or environmental benefits that help meet local need

    They are particularly keen to hear from projects that might be aiming to create something unique and exceptional; or which will contribute more widely to enriching Scotland’s built environment fabric through trying new and better ways of doing things, i.e. innovative approaches with potential for replication and wider learning.

    Example of situations that welcome a discussion about potentially supporting with this fund include:

    • emergency repairs/urgent capital works/mothballing
    • to prevent deterioration whilst developing longer term plans for a building
    • to enable a ‘meanwhile use’ or testing of proposed longer-term use(s)
    • other costs involved in enabling meanwhile uses
    • uplifts needed to existing funding due to unexpected situations/increased costs
    • projects involving unlisted buildings that are highly valued by local communities for their historic interest
    • assisting in building the capacity of a community to deliver a project
    • any other areas where our other grant funding programmes cannot currently assist

    More information and application.
