About

About

The Heritage Alliance, established in 2002 as Heritage Link, is the biggest alliance of heritage interests in the UK and was set up to promote the central role of the independent movement in the heritage sector.

The Heritage Alliance aims to advocate by identifying the overarching messages from our members and putting them across to opinion formers and decision makers in England. The Alliance also aims to advocate broader issues such as the importance of heritage to national prosperity and wellbeing, alongside the importance of generating new thinking and dialogue on heritage issues.

It aims to share by drawing on members’ experience and expertise to influence legislation, policy and guidance; by supporting collaborative working and information-sharing between Alliance members; and by exploring new patterns of engagement to deepen understanding and commitment.

It builds capacity amongst members to champion and engage with heritage through events and on-line resources; by taking forward initiatives to strengthen the financial resilience of the independent heritage sector; and by promoting and embracing partnership opportunities.

The Heritage alliance also develops its members by achieving greater representation by heritage groups; by refreshing and developing information-sharing devices such as the Advocacy Groups, Heritage Update, website and social media; and by increasing and diversifying funding for core costs, including corporate and individual support.
