About Us

Glasgow City Heritage Trust gives out almost £1million in funding each year to help people in Glasgow protect, repair and promote the city’s historic buildings and places.

Through our conservation grants programmes people will enjoy, understand and care for Glasgow’s historic built environment and will be able to access funding and expertise which will ensure the sustainability of the city’s heritage for current and future generations.

We do this by:

  • Grant-aiding historic building repairs, project development and conservation work
  • Giving technical advice
  • Coordinating and funding training sessions focused on traditional building skills, methods and materials
  • Hosting a range of exhibitions and displays in our public gallery space
  • Running a series of talks, debates and special events
  • Working with local organisations to support and fund a range of heritage projects

We have publicly accessible headquarters in the historic heart of the Merchant City; pop in to collect leaflets, trails and maps, view our exhibitions, get advice on historic buildings maintenance and grants and come to our talks and workshops!

We are a team of ten staff with a voluntary Board of Trustees. The GCHT team and chair are grateful to the Trustees for their service, without which the Trust would not be able to function as it does.

Glasgow City Heritage Trust is an independent charity, supported by Glasgow City Council and Historic Environment Scotland, along with our Friends. We are very grateful to our principal funders and Friends for their continuing support.
