HES consultations:  Historic Environment Policy for Scotland, closing 31/08; Grant funding programmes, closing 6/09

HES is consulting on individual experiences of using Historic Environment Policy for Scotland (HEPS)  – seeking as many responses as possible by 31/08, and on its grant funding programmes – asking for one response per organisation – closing 6 September.

… survey is for everyone…

HES writes on HEPS:

… Two years on from the introduction of the Historic Environment Policy for Scotland (HEPS), we are seeking your views on how the policy is performing.

This survey is for everyone. Whether you have never heard of HEPS before, use it everyday, or are somewhere in between, your feedback is really valuable to us. It will help us to monitor the performance of HEPS and identify opportunities to provide additional support where needed.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and is anonymous, unless you let us know that you are happy to take part in an informal follow-up conversation to explore your response further. This is optional and you will be asked whether you’d like to take part at the end of the survey.

We have developed a draft HES Grants Framework which sets out this new approach and provides detailed information on why and how we are proposing to do this. Please ensure that you read the full document before completing the consultation…

What is the HES Grants Framework?

The HES Grants Framework is a draft document that has been developed to guide our future grants activity. It sets out the background to the refresh of our current grant programmes and summarises the key changes being proposed to align with our Corporate Plan ‘Heritage for All’.  We still have a lot of work to do to develop the detail of our new programmes, but this document shows our direction of travel and provides an opportunity for you and other stakeholders to input into the refresh process….
