 We understand the rapidly changing environment for small voluntary sector organisations trying to establish themselves in the heritage sector.   We collaborate with a growing number of partners in arts, media and culture to deliver our own unique range of oral history services across the region and are well placed to provide help to other new organisations trying to establish, grow and sustain their development in these challenging times.    

 

With this underpinning organisational expertise we are able to offer consultancy support with identifying funding opportunities and bid development, including bids to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for example; historical research work on potential heritage and regeneration sites and media development, including web strategy and development.  We have also undertaken evaluations on many projects, and have particular expertise in this area.
