The National Trust is an independent charity and therefore does not receive regular grant-in-aid from central Government. Instead, it may receive adhoc payments for specific projects to benefit its estate and/or the wider historic environment. Some of Government’s arm’s length bodies also provide grants to the National Trust for specific projects, such as over £35million in grants given to the National Trust by National Lottery Heritage Fund since 2010.
