logoEast Lothian Council and the Preston Seton Gosford Area Partnership have secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund Great Place Scheme for a ground-breaking project in East Lothian.

The aim of the Great Place Scheme is to put heritage at the heart of the local vision in places across Scotland, making a step change in the contribution of heritage in those areas, and embedding it in the places’ plans for the future. By strengthening the connections between heritage, civic and community organisations, and the private sector, and by involving people, projects will enhance the role that heritage plays in the future of each place participating in the Scheme. In time this will lead to the social and economic benefits that heritage can achieve, including tackling poverty and inequality, improved resilience for local organisations, and inclusive growth in the local economy, amongst others. The HLF refer to this as networked heritage.

We are seeking and experienced, enthusiastic, and creative person with a background in heritage / community heritage to help the community realise their vison of making the most of their local heritage. Please DOWNLOAD the job description and person specification for more details.

You will be working closely with local heritage groups and the community planning partnership to help build connections and increase capacity and resilience in the sector in order to reduce local inequalities.  The core purposes of the Scheme are to:

  • Complete a Heritage Asset Audit identifying physical and cultural heritage assets, their significance locally, their ownership and which assets will benefit most from support and development;
  • Establish a Heritage Network of local heritage groups and organisations with the aim of supporting them to develop sustainable management models, engage new audiences, develop product, and improve resilience, collaboration, and operational capacity;
  • Carry out a skills audit of local heritage groups and organisations, identify and prioritise training needs to support collaboration, sustainability, resilience and capacity, and organise the training required;
  • Create a positive ‘village identity’ for the target communities in the project area;
  • Establish a Great Place sub-group within the Area Partnership to ensure the project leaves a legacy of partnership working between the Area Partnership and the Heritage Network to help deliver Local Outcome Improvements.
