Where our funding comes from
The overall cost of restoring the gardens at Stephens House & Gardens will be approximately £3 million. The HLF is being asked to grant £2.1 million and Barnet Council has agreed to provide match fund £250,000.
Part of the remaining funding is coming in the form of voluntary work, but the Avenue House Estate Trust is seeking to raise funding from a number of other sources including the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme and various independent charitable funders.
The project will also depend on the support of users of the gardens that give a small amount every month through a standing order.
