The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) features the Welsh Jewish Heritage Centre project in Merthyr Tydfil in its 2020-21 Annual Review .
“The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is a registered charity, working since 1976 to promote the conservation and sustainable re-use of historic buildings for the benefit of communities across the UK, particularly in economically disadvantaged areas“.
“The AHF exists to help communities find enterprising ways to revitalise the old buildings they love. We help them with advice, grants and loans. Our support acts as a catalyst for putting sustainable heritage at the heart of vibrant local economies. For over 40 years, we’ve been the leading social investor in creating new futures for historic buildings”.
In 2020, the Welsh Jewish Heritage Centre project was the recipient of an AHF grant as part of its Project Development Grant Scheme.
Michael Mail, Chief Executive of the Foundation for Jewish Heritage commented, “we are delighted that our Merthyr initiative features in the Architectural Heritage Fund Annual Review. The AHF has been a key supporter and partner in the project for several years which we deeply appreciate. It is an involvement that reflects its potential and importance.
