NCT Yorkshire maintenance project

Logo

The National Churches Trust was successful in receiving £90,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) in June 2016 for the Yorkshire Maintenance Project which focuses on promoting good practice in preventative maintenance at Yorkshire’s historic churches, chapels and meeting houses, delivering systems to make it easier for churches to maintain their historic fabric.

This project will set up a maintenance management system to connect churches with maintenance professionals, and address skills and information gaps for churches in Yorkshire. The aims of the project are:

  1. To promote awareness of the benefits of preventative maintenance through training
  2. To increase the number of Yorkshire churches that regularly undertake maintenance
  3. To improve knowledge of the conditions of churches at high level
  4. To result in heritage being in better condition as a result of the regular maintenance care and inspections

The NCT are offering a micro grants scheme, in partnership with the Pilgrim Trust, which will help churches pay for 50% of their first gutter clearance contract.  There are up to 200 grants available this year for churches who meet the eligibility criteria.
