The development of Saltaire Stories by the Saltaire World Heritage Education Association has won support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The press release on14th December read:
Thanks to National Lottery players, the project will make the Saltaire Archive much more accessible to all visitors and learners interested in Saltaire’s history.
HLF support in 2016 will enable the project to appoint an experienced archivist to map the Archive and identify key learning themes – supported by a fantastic group of volunteers.
Working alongside the archivist and volunteers, an experienced educator will assess the curriculum and learning opportunities for students within primary, secondary, further/higher and informal education.
Development funding from HLF of £11,700 has been awarded to help SWHEA / Saltaire Stories to progress their plans to apply for a full grant at a later date.
