Membership

As a membership organisation, we simply would not exist without our members. Heritage Alliance members are at the heart of everything we do.

Our members' support allows us to demonstrate public enthusiasm for our heritage and its social and economic benefits, therefore securing government understanding and support.

If you would like to have a discussion about membership at the Heritage Alliance, please contact Delphine Jasmin-Belisle at development@theheritagealliance.org.uk.

Testimonies

Just wanted to say I think you guys are doing a sterling job of keeping everyone updated during this crisis. I'm very glad the sector has you in our corner.
World Heritage UK
I am writing to say how much we in the Building Crafts and Conservation Foundation have appreciated being able to use our members benefits. For small organisations like ours, especially with Covid-19, we don’t always know what to do next...In just two Zoom sessions we gained so much help.

Our membership of The Heritage Alliance is a crucial link into policy decisions at Westminster. In 2016 I participated in The Heritage Alliance’s flagship Heritage Debate, arguing that accurate, authentic and accessible content was the key to creating new interpretations and new ways of engaging audiences. This was a valuable platform, enabling me to share the work of colleagues in Oxford, and advocate for the value gained from collaborating with universities. This close connection with The Heritage Alliance also allows us to grow the next generation of heritage professionals and advocates for heritage.

So glad we joined and I look forward to getting more involved with The Heritage Alliance

I have found all the info from The Heritage Alliance during this period very useful. As a one-person-band it's very helpful and reassuring to have all the resources curated for me.

May I congratulate you on the publication of the Heritage and Wellbeing Report, which is an excellent report that has been well-received...the Trust is delighted to have been included in the report. Thank you for showcasing the positive impact that the Trust is having on the wellbeing of individuals and their communities, through heritage. Thank you too for organising such an informative and engaging webinar to launch the report.
