Capacity Building

Shropshire Hills AONB Capacity Building Project

This project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of their Resilient Heritage programme.

The AONB Partnership and the charitable AONB Trust which work on behalf of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are seeking to meet growing expectations and challenges in an increasingly competitive funding environment.

This two year project, 2018-2020, aims to develop the two complementary organisations and their collaborative working, especially with regard to income generation. Activities include preparation of Business Plans, training and development for key staff and volunteers, and a programme of income-generation activities and project development through new staffing capacity, supported by communications and public engagement work.

The project will help our two organisations to build their capacity to conserve and enhance the AONB into the future. Working together we will be better able to meet the challenges faced by our special landscape, and help us deliver long term benefits for people who live and work in the AONB, and those who visit it.
