About the Cultural Protection Fund
The £30m Cultural Protection Fund, a partnership between the British Council and the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), was established in 2016 to protect heritage at risk in 12 countries in and around the Middle East and North Africa. Since then, 51 grants have been awarded to protect heritage and support communities.
