Outer Hebrides to benefit from four days of heritage fundraising training

We will be spending four days on the Outer Hebrides next month in a bid to promote financial sustainability among the islands’ heritage sector.

Since we launched in 2014, Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage (RSH) has been delivering a programme of accessible training courses, inspirational expert led events and networking opportunities throughout Scotland. In September, RSH will deliver a four day programme on Stornoway, Isle of Lewis and Benbecula taking the training off the mainland and making it accessible to more remote communities. The move follows a successful two day visit to Orkney last year.

Over four days RSH will deliver its Fundraising: Make it Happen course as well as running surgeries offering advice on legacy fundraising and applying to charitable trusts and foundations.

RSH was recently awarded over a quarter of a million pounds from the Heritage Lottery Fund to extend for a fourth year. The initiative developed to help Scotland’s heritage sector develop long-term financial security will now run until the end of March 2018.
