The Heritage Lottery Fund has four main objectives for Landscape Partnership Schemes (LPS):
- Conserving or restoring the built and natural features that create the historic landscape character.
- Increasing community participation in local heritage.
- Increasing access to and learning about the landscape and its heritage.
- Increasing training opportunities in local heritage skills.
The Scheme must include a programme of activity to be delivered over three years which meets all these objectives equally. The funding can be spent on staff, practical grants, events, infrastructure and other items that will help deliver the objectives. The Scheme will run for 3 years from 2015.

Peregrini Lindisfarne aims to ensure that the precious cultural and natural heritage is appreciated and enjoyed for generations to come. It is our ambition to protect and enhance the Holy island of Lindisfarne and shore side by drawing upon the community's close relationship with the land and seascapes, heritage and history, making the area a better place to live, work and visit.
Natural habitats will be conserved, and buildings of historic interest and other cultural heritage sites will be repaired. Access and interpretation for all abilities and ages will be improved. People will investigate their local heritage and talk to older members of the community about their experiences. New opportunities for training and work in heritage skills will be developed.
As well as helping conserve and enhance the landscape, the scheme will bring people together; better understanding the heritage and their part in it. They will begin to appreciate how others see the landscape and promote the services it provides.
