How would you like HLF to help people in Scotland explore, enjoy and protect the heritage they care about over the next five years? What should the Heritage Lottery Fund's (HLF) role be; how should they prioritise funding; and to what extent can heritage help our neighbourhoods and our society? This online consultation about HLF's Strategic Funding Framework for 2019-2024 is now open, so if you think you can help answer these questions, now is the time to speak up. HLF funding has become a critical part of delivering LSC projects through Landscape Partnership Schemes and other grants in recent years, so it would be great to get LSC Practitioners' views and experience as part of this consultation. The consultation is available via the ComRes external site   microsite and runs until Thursday 22 March 2018.
