Heritage Heroes

Volunteers are vital for the protection of England’s heritage. From caring for rural heritage sites to engaging the next generation of visitors, volunteers’ skills, passion, and commitment are the backbone of the heritage sector.

For over a decade, Ecclesiastical’s Heritage Heroes Awards have celebrated the incredible contribution of volunteers in the heritage sector. More than a simple thank you, these awards are a great opportunity to demonstrate how communities can take ownership of the historic environment around them and make a real difference.

Ecclesiastical's Heritage Heroes Awards are returning to recognise outstanding volunteers in the heritage sector in 2022!

Alongside the Ecclesiastical Heritage Hero 2022 Award, our special category for this year is the Ecclesiastical Heritage Storyteller Award.

Further details about this year’s categories, and how to send a nomination on behalf of your 2022 Heritage Hero/es by 15 January 2023 can be found here.

The winners will be announced at Heritage Day - 1 & 2 March, 2023!
