Heritage Alliance membership: Join us today!
Become a member of The Heritage Alliance today to add your voice to England’s biggest coalition of heritage interests.
Why support the Heritage Alliance?
As a membership organisation, we simply would not exist without our members.
The demand for independent leadership in the heritage sector has never been greater. Yet growing expectations from members and external stakeholders far exceed our resources.
Having a broad membership not only provides valuable income but demonstrates both the diversity and vitality of the heritage movement and the deep concern for the future of our historic environment shared by public, private and voluntary interests alike.
As a registered charity we rely on grants, donations, subscriptions and project funding for support. We are fortunate to receive a proportion of our core funding from Historic England but additional revenue is critical to the success of our advocacy
Your support, in whatever capacity, will help us:
- demonstrate public enthusiasm for our heritage and its social and economic benefits
- secure government understanding and support for heritage through legislation, policy and public funding, and
- link with others to draw the vast independent heritage movement into initiatives in the heritage, wider cultural and civil society sectors.
What are the benefits for members?

- attend our annual Heritage Day and other events at a reduced membership rate
