Early impacts of the HLF Catalyst: capacity building programmes…

The team at DC Research have been working with HLF since mid-2014 on the Evaluation of the HLF Catalyst: capacity building programmes.

HLF have published the first evaluation report which focusses on the Catalyst capacity building programmes: Catalyst: Umbrella and Catalyst: small grants.

The report gives an overview of how Umbrella projects are delivering their programmes and notes the strong rationale and need for the programme. Fundraising remains a challenge for heritage organisations but the nine Umbrella projects are working across the UK to support organisations to develop skills to fundraise and diversify income. The Umbrella projects are expected to deliver over 15,000 learning and networking opportunities by the end of the programme.

You can read some of the headline findings from the research into the early impacts of Catalyst: Small grants in an HLF blog written by DC Research Director Dr Stephen Connolly.
