Advice: Understanding our licence requirement

At The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we are committed to ensuring the greatest possible public, social and economic benefit from the work we fund. Today (16 September) we are updating our licencing requirements to better support that.

Use of digital technologies to create opportunities to connect to heritage are more important than ever. We have long understood the power of open licences to:

  • enable people to actively engage with heritage
  • support the use, reuse and development of publicly funded resources

“Our new licencing requirement helps us to increase access to the UK’s rich heritage and promote the innovative use of digital across the sector.”

Josie Fraser, Head of Digital Policy
