We give grants of up to £5,000 for conservation reports on historic interiors in Anglican parish churches in England. Conservation reports are an essential first step in projects involving the repair and conservation of artworks and historic furnishings in churches. They are also a key document to support faculty and grant applications. More information on conservation reports can be found here

In addition to conservation reports, we also fund other types of surveys or analyses that may be needed to work out why your object needs conservation, including:

  • Building performance surveys
  • Environmental surveys
  • Technical analyses such as paint or pigment analysis, and salt analysis

These grants are offered in partnership with the Pilgrim Trust. Our grants are awarded around 4-8 weeks after application.
