In November HLF’s Chair, Sir Peter Luff, announced we would be launching an exciting new youth initiative in 2016/17. Designed to bring a step-change in the way the heritage sector works with young people aged 11-25 outside schools, in the first instance we anticipate funding a small number of large scale demonstrator projects across the UK. We will award grants to consortia of organisations with a credible track record of working with young people and the ability to embed practice in the heritage sector.

Before we launch the initiative we would like to test our ideas with a small number of youth and heritage sector experts and we would be delighted if you could join us and our facilitator Ruth Clarke to share your perspectives and ideas.

We are running three workshops across the UK in January.

13 January 2016: London, 14.30 – 17.30, including networking time
NCVO office in Kings Cross: NCVO - Find us

18 January 2016: Edinburgh, 13.15 – 16.15, beginning with a networking lunch

20 January 2016Cardiff, 10.30 – 13.45, closing with lunch

We hope we will be able join us for one of these sessions.  Please RSVP to Diane: by 06 January 2016 with the following information:

The session you would like to attend
Your name
Your job tile and organisation
Your contact details
Any access requirements
Any dietary requirements

We have a limited number of places, which will be filled on a first come, first served basis and would prefer one representative per organisation. If you think the workshops would be of interest to colleagues outside your organisation, please feel free to pass on their names in your reply.

Thank you and we hope to see you soon,
