Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF)

The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is a registered charity founded in 1976 to promote the conservation of historic buildings in the UK. It does this by providing advice, information and financial assistance in the form of development grants and large low-interest loans to charities and other not-for-profit organisations, for projects involving the sustainable new use of a building which is listed, scheduled or in a conservation area. 

The AHF plays a strong development role by providing relevant guidance throughout the duration of a project.  The AHF has a team of support officers based throughout the UK who will visit potential projects and new groups.  Several publications are available from the AHF and can be downloaded free unless otherwise indicated from www.ahfund.org.uk.
