Empowering people to rescue and reuse historic buildings and spaces for their communities

Four nations

Heritage Trust Network is a UK-wide organisation with a distinct presence in each of the four nations. Each nation has a Committee made up of members and a dedicated trustee on the Network’s board.

Our national committees work with the staff team to organise events, work in partnership with other organisations in the heritage sector and beyond, and represent the Network on national forums.

In each nation we are working to have dedicated staff in the form of Development and Outreach Officers and/or Heritage Trainees, working with our UK staff to support our members, organise events and bring new members into the Network.


The Network has more than 550 members all over England. We have established an England Committee to provide advice and additional capacity to feed into national forums and networks. We are funded by Historic England and work closely with them on high street regeneration, inclusion and carbon literacy.
