This guide is designed to help heritage organisations meet The National Lottery Heritage Fund's open licencing requirement.
The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s licensing requirement supports open access to the rich heritage in the UK and the exciting possibilities of digital transformation in the cultural sector. All materials created or digitised with grant funding are subject to this requirement, which was updated in September 2020.
Open licences and public domain dedications are tools that give the public permission to use materials typically protected by copyright and other laws.
