British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund: Inviting Applicants for Small Grant Programme

Deadline: 20 July 2018

The Cultural Protection Fund (CPF) is seeking expression of interests (EOIs) for its Small Grant programme to help create sustainable opportunities for social and economic development through building capacity to foster, safeguard and promote cultural heritage in conflict-affected countries.

The Fund will support efforts to keep cultural heritage sites and objects safe, as well as supporting the recording, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. It will also provide opportunities to local communities for training and education, enabling and empowering them in the long term to value, care for and benefit from their cultural heritage. Cultural heritage includes many different things from the past that communities value and want to pass on to future generations, for example:

  • archaeological sites and monuments;
  • collections of objects, books or documents in museums, libraries or archives;
  • historic buildings;
  • cultural traditions such as stories, festivals, crafts, music, dance and costumes;
  • histories of people, communities, places and events;
  • the heritage of languages and dialects; and
  • people’s memories and experiences (often recorded as ‘oral history’).

Grant Information

Applicants to the Small Grants funding stream may apply for grants up to £100,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

Geographical Scope

Applications must relate directly to one or more of the Fund’s current target countries: Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Iraq, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Yemen.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications must be submitted by one lead applicant organisation with up to eight partner organisations.
  • Lead applicant organisations based outside the target countries must deliver the project in partnership with at least one partner organisation based within the Fund’s target countries.
  • Organisations based within target countries can also apply to the fund, with or without partners.
  • Applications must demonstrate intent to benefit one or more of the Fund’s 12 target countries as their main aim. If private owners or for-profit organisations are involved in a project, they expect the benefit to the social and economic development of the target country to outweigh any private gain.

How to Apply

To confirm suitability, applicant organisations must first complete online Expression of Interest form via given website.
