|Partnership Schemes in Conservation Areas (England)
Historic England is the government’s expert advisory service for England’s historic environment. They give constructive advice to local authorities, owners and the public and champion historic places helping people to understand, value and care for them. Local authorities can apply for funding under the Partnership Schemes in Conservation Areas (PSICA) scheme; these are designed to target funding for the preservation and enhancement of conservation areas. Partnership schemes make grants available to the owners of individual properties, within a conservation area, who want to carry out repairs or other appropriate work which will enhance the area. The PSICA is based on a partnership between Historic England, the Local Authority and other funding bodies.

The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee that promotes the conservation and sustainable re-use of historic buildings at risk for the benefit of the public.

In particular it aims to enable not for profit organisations to explore the evidence of need for a suggested use, or uses, for a building and the sustainability of that use, with a view to the likely requirements of grant funders. Grants are available up to £10,000.
