Historic England maintains a national Heritage at Risk Register that includes details of all Grade I and II* listed buildings at risk, plus details of Grade II listed buildings at risk in London and Grade II listed places of worship at risk outside London. In relation to buildings on the Register, Historic England operates a grant scheme for project development and urgent structural repairs, and provides advice to owners, developers and local authorities on changes, plus other sources of funding and advice. Such sources include the Heritage Lottery Fund, which has awarded over £90 million towards projects in the North East primarily focused on listed buildings. These projects typically focus on repair and redevelopment, but can also include funding for other activities such as engagement which help ensure the long term sustainability of a project.
