Historic England is responsible for delivering a national Heritage at Risk Programme (https://historicengland.org.uk/advice/heritage-at-risk/), and Kate leads a team working with partners and funding bodies to reduce risks to significant heritage assets in North East England. She works with local authority partners, owners, Building Preservation Trusts, developers and land managers to develop projects that will reduce the risks for positive reasons and ensure a future for the heritage assets currently ‘at risk’ on our Register. She is always looking for new partners to develop projects that will rescue historic sites from neglect, decay and inappropriate development. Historic England offer specialist advice and grant towards repair. They also provide advice and grant aid for strategic projects and projects that build capacity in the heritage sector, including traditional building skills.
