Media Trust has been commissioned to support more than 500 projects across the UK that have benefited from Heritage Lottery Fund’s All Our Stories initiative.
The programme will see organisations throughout the country explore their local heritage, with Media Trust helping projects create a digital record of the work they do.
All Our Stories is benefiting a wide range of organisations and charities, with funding to provide the skills and expert advice needed to capture community heritage in a lasting way.
Media Trust’s support includes offering communications training and resources, as well as helping organisations access media volunteers and harness creative talent.
Director of Marketing at Media Trust, Gavin Sheppard said "We are really pleased to be working with Heritage Lottery Fund to support so many diverse groups across the country with their All Our Stories heritage projects. Media Trust believes that digital media is a powerful tool that enables communities and charities to get their voices heard both in real time and as a legacy for future generations"
Heritage Lottery Fund Chair Dame Jenny Abramsky said: “We’re looking forward to hearing more about the colourful stories that emerge; they will create a unique picture of these islands at an important time in our history.”
