Heritage Lottery Funding

Malcolm Reading Consultants has a strong relationship with the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF); starting in 1998 we were one of a select few consultancies who monitored and advised case officers on projects in the South East Region of England.

This has given us a unique, perhaps unparalleled, insight into the inner workings of the HLF system, as well as excellent contacts within the HLF throughout the UK.

MRC also has an excellent track record applying for Heritage Lottery Fund grants and regularly end up managing the projects for which we have secured funding. Our current total is nearly £60 million of grant awards on ten projects, a 96% success rate.

Projects on which we have worked for the HLF, as monitor or project adviser, include:

The Beaney, Canterbury
Clapton Portico, London
Dollis Hill House, London
London Coliseum, London
Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge
John Ryland’s University Library, Manchester
Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford
Roundhouse, London
Sir John Soane’s Museum, London
St George’s, Bloomsbury
Upminster Old Chapel, London
V&A British Galleries, London
V&A ‘Architecture for All’, London
