NECT lands game-changer grant from the National Lottery!

April 2017. NECT has been awarded an amazing grant of £145,200 by HLF under its Resilient Heritage programme to give the Trust its biggest overhaul in 25 years. It is one of the first successful applications in the UK to this programme, so we're understandably thrilled and thankful to the people who play the National Lottery who have made this boost possible.

Over the next 18 months, this award will allow us to grow our staff and trustees in terms of experience and knowledge, expand our areas of activity and develop a more robust future for the organisation as a whole,. it will also enable us to share our experience with other similar bodies in the north east region, hosting a series of training sessions across a variety of topics including archives and collections management, evaluation, property maintenance and good guardianship.
