> The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF), with the support of English Heritage and Cadw, has today launched a unique online guide to the funding available for rescuing and restoring historic buildings.  The guide, > '> Funds for Historic Buildings> '> , can be accessed free of charge at www.ffhb.org.uk <http://www.ffhb.org.uk>.
> 
> Historic buildings are a significant part of our cultural heritage which, once lost, cannot be replaced, but caring for them costs money.  This initiative brings together for the first time on one website details of more than 140 sources of funding to help restore historic buildings in England and Wales.  It comes at a time when the fate of the nation> '> s heritage is increasingly in the public eye, and the new BBC2 public-vote series, Restoration, will further raise the profile of this issue.
> 
> The website is for all those with an interest in saving historic buildings, especially voluntary organisations, local authorities and public bodies. The funding sources listed range from Government agencies through to charitable trusts and regional and European funds. 
> 
> Michael Brainsby, Acting Director of the AHF, said: > "> Every year we help many charities to take on restoration and regeneration projects involving historic buildings. These buildings are saved, often as community or educational facilities, or housing, and act as catalysts for regeneration in the surrounding area. But none of this is possible without funding. This website will be a first port of call for people looking for money to get projects like these off the ground.> ">  
> 
> A search function means users can seek out the sources of funds most likely to apply to them. The website also provides invaluable practical information and includes easy-to-read sections on topics such as how to make funding applications, fundraising from individuals and companies, and where to get advice on restoration work.  The information on the site will be updated and expanded continually, giving those seeking funding the most comprehensive data available anywhere.
> 
> Dr Simon Thurley, Chief Executive of English Heritage added, > "> One  monument has been lost every day in England since 1995 and many more continue to be > '> at risk> '> .  Making funding sources more accessible is a vital step in reversing this process and enabling communities to protect and enjoy their built environment for years to come.  English Heritage is delighted to support this AHF initiative.> "> 
> 
> Tom Cassidy, Cadw> '> s Chief Executive, also welcomed the guide and the contribution it makes to providing clearer and better information on the available sources of funding for projects.

> The Architectural Heritage Fund
> 
> For over 25 years the Architectural Heritage Fund has helped building preservation trusts and other charities to regenerate historic buildings, creating community and education facilities, workspace and homes. The AHF has supported such groups with grants, loans and advice on more than 750 projects to date.
> 
> For more information on the work of the AHF, and illustrative case studies of buildings rescued with AHF help, please go to www.ahfund.org.uk <http://www.ahfund.org.uk> 
> 
> Although much of the information in the directory will also be of interest to readers from Scotland and Northern Ireland there are specific sources of information for funding in these areas. > 
> 
> For Northern Ireland, users should refer to > "> Directory of Funds for Historic Buildings, Northern Ireland> ">  published by the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society in association with the NI Environment and Heritage Service. The most recent edition is dated October 1999. Copies may be obtained from the UAHS (tel. 028 9055 0213). The Society also has a useful website at www.uahs.co.uk <http://www.uahs.co.uk>. 
> 
> For Scotland, users should refer to > "> Sources of Financial Help for Scotland> '> s Historic Buildings> "> , published by the Scottish Civic Trust on behalf of Historic Scotland. A fully revised edition of this guide was published in April 2003. The publication itself is free, but the SCT would appreciate an A4 sae (1 stamp) to cover the cost of postage. Call the Scottish Civic Trust (0141 221 1466) for further information.
