NHSF Members Awarded Funding from Culture and Heritage Capital Programme

NHSF members Historic England and UCL have been awarded funding to help develop a robust and holistic approach for capturing and articulating the value of culture and heritage as part of the Culture and Heritage Capital Programme.

The UK Government Culture and Heritage Capital Programme  seeks to establish a standardised, consistent economic approach for calculating the value of cultural heritage assets. The hope is that this guidance will better equip people and businesses in the cultural heritage sector to assess the benefits of heritage assets and make business decisions accordingly.

In January 2024, it was announced that NHSF members Historic England and UCL have both been awarded funding to research particular strands of the programme.

Historic England will develop a taxonomy of culture and heritage capital (CHC), and UCL will advance towards an evaluation framework that considers the lifetimes of heritage.
