The AIA has money to give away -
could your organisation or project benefit?

The AIA has a number of award and grant schemes but we need people to apply for them. Over £200,000 has been given out in Restoration Grants in recent years, and the maximum has been increased to £20,000. Please see our Awards Page for details of all we can do.


The AIA promotes the study, preservation and presentation of Britain's industrial heritage.

Britain was the first industrial nation. For the last two centuries industry has had a major influence on the society, environment and landscape in which we live.

The AIA is the national organisation for people who share an interest in Britain's industrial past. It brings together people who are researching, recording, preserving and presenting the great variety of this country's industrial heritage. Industrial architecture, mineral extraction, heritage-based tourism, power technology, adaptive re-use of industrial buildings and transport history are just some of the themes being investigated by our members.

Every year the Association monitors over 200 hundred applications to alter or demolish industrial sites and buildings. We work with other amenity groups to protect Britain's heritage and represent Britain on the International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage.

We can also help with financial grants for a number of aspects of industrial archaeology, including our new Restoration Grant. Click here for details.
