Heritage Lottery Fund & Arts Council Grants Consultant

Alix’s experience of the heritage sector is excellent.

She did the HLF Activity Plan for us and this was an extraordinarily thorough document. We know, because HLF told us, that they completely took our bid to pieces looking for anything that didn’t stack up properly and could find nothing!

I am happy to recommend Alix Slater and would feel very confident in working with her again on other projects.

Programme Manager, Historic Lincoln Projects

I have been helping heritage, museum and arts organisations apply for lottery grants since 1995 and have helped secure £25m in the last 5 years alone. As one of the UK’s most experienced consultants in this field, and also a HLF monitor and mentor, I work with a range of clients including societies, trusts, local authorities and universities who I work with:


  • developing projects
  • advising on pre-applications
  • preparing documentation for Round 1 and Round 2 applications
  • writing Activity Plans
  • writing Business Plans
  • writing Marketing Plans
  • writing Management and Maintenance Plans
  • undertaking consultations and market research

On larger and more complex projects I often work with partners to provide additional capacity, expertise in areas such as archive management, fundraising and project management skills.
