How can we help?

On the Rebuilding Heritage programme we offer support in a range of different work areas but we recognise that it may be challenging to identify how you might apply this support in practice in your heritage work. We’ve put together a list of ideas based on activities and challenges that previous participants have worked on with our consultants, there are three lists that relate specifically to informal associations, to freelancers, and to organisations. These lists do not cover everything, they are intended just to get you thinking!

For more information on the support available and how to submit your application, please visit https://rebuildingheritage.org.uk/bookingnow/
