What We Do

What we do

The Heritage Alliance briefs opinion-formers in the Westminster government and beyond on the value of heritage and the contribution that independent heritage organisations make to contemporary society.

The Alliance responds to parliamentary business and formal consultations on behalf of our members, identifying the consensus from across the independent heritage movement. We raise independent heritage organisations shared concerns at national forums, undertake and contribute to national projects and partnerships, support our member’s financial resilience through capacity-building initiatives, and organise projects, debates and forums on a wide-range of areas and subjects affecting heritage.
