A reminder

why our work is so important.

About Heritage Trust Network

Heritage Trust Network is a membership organisation run by people who have delivered amazing heritage projects against all the odds. Our mission is to help others do the same.

The Network operates throughout the United Kingdom, drawing together and supporting the work of local heritage groups, whether constituted as building preservation trusts, community trusts or social enterprises.

Heritage Trust Network, predominantly run by professional volunteers, provides an invaluable platform for members by way of peer-to-peer support, knowledge sharing and skills development. Our guidance and advice helps groups throughout the lifetime of their project from start up to post completion.

Just as importantly, Heritage Trust Network also gives this extraordinary grassroots movement a united voice, representing its views to government and funding bodies.

Heritage Trust Network is here to help you ensure a future for all our pasts.
