Rebuilding Heritage is led by the Heritage Alliance, an advocacy body uniting over 150 independent heritage organisations in England representing the full breadth of this dynamic sector.

The Heritage Alliance comprises independent heritage organisations from national organisations, such as the National Trust, English Heritage, Canal & River Trust, and Historic Houses, to specialist bodies representing visitors, owners, volunteers, professional practitioners, funders and educators. Bringing together the voices of its members’ 6.3 million volunteers, trustees, staff, and supporters, it is a powerful and effective advocate for heritage in all its forms.
