Welcome to The Heritage Alliance
The Heritage Alliance unites 97 independent heritage organisations in England, acting as a powerful, effective and independent advocate for the movement.
The Heritage Alliance is the biggest coalition of heritage interests in England. It brings together the independent heritage organisations, from the National Trust, Canal & River Trust and Historic Houses Association, to more specialist bodies representing visitors, owners, volunteers, professional practitioners, funders and educationalists. Between them, their 6.3 million volunteers, trustees, members and staff demonstrate the strength and commitment of the independent heritage movement.
The future Historic England would like to talk to Heritage Alliance members about the best way to become involved in its education strategy.
