Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund

The Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund is for urgent repairs to public places of worship across the UK.  This government sponsored fund was set up to help make the UK's listed places of worship weathertight, safe and open for use.  It is administered by the National Heritage Memorial Fund on behalf of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The programme was set up after the Chancellor of the Exchequer committed £15 million of funding in 2014.  After the programme opened for applications the significant demand resulted in the Chancellor committing further funds to the Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund in the 2015 budget.

The programme is now open for a second round of funding, with a budget of £25 million to be awarded in 2016.  The closing date for applications is Friday 26 February 2016 at 12 noon, with decisions to be announced in June 2016.  Any applicants who were unsuccessful during the first round and wish to be considered again will need to make a new application.
