Shout Out Loud

A Youth Voice and Involvement In Heritage

English Heritage are thrilled to have been awarded funding of £959,500 by Heritage Lottery Fund to develop a project under their new pioneering Kick the Dust stream.

Joining in on our journey to transform the way in which young people have a voice in heritage will be our consortium partners:

Sound Connections
Young Archaeologists Club
National Youth Theatre

With thanks to players of the National Lottery, this funding will support a project that will tell hidden stories through the voice and eyes of young people.

Young people will get stuck in and hands on in developing and delivering the project to shape what heritage means to young people and facilitate them having a real say in what they want.

A pilot programme for the Heritage Lottery Fund, with a group of young heritage ambassadors leading on the decision making, the 'Kick the Dust' programme wants to see more young people aged 11-25 involved in heritage.

Youth Volunteers


Over the next few months, we'll be getting the ball rolling with our project including recruiting a staff team and setting up our Young Producers group - a team of 16-21 year olds who will manage the project.

We're not quite ready yet, but you can follow the story with @ehvolunteering and #ehshoutoutloud  #kickthedust

To deliver this exciting project we are recruiting a new project team:

Project Manager

Development Manager

Youth Participation Officer, Swindon

Youth Participation Officer, Newcastle


In the development of the project, we have been talking to Young People from across England.
