Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust has recently received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the ‘Coming in From the Cold’ project.

The project aims to expand support to heritage projects led by BME community groups and to increase diversity in the archival records in the Greater Manchester region. Community groups will benefit from support to develop and deliver their heritage projects and to showcase and share what they do.

The Trust has been awarded development funding to help progress plans to apply for a full grant later in the year. At this stage, an audit of BME community archives and oral histories across Greater Manchester will be carried out and groups identified to become potential partners in the next phase of the project.
