Community Heritage Project

The Community Heritage Project is central to the work of the Trust.  It is supported by Historic Scotland.

The key aim of this project is to to assist the Trust in supporting the effective management of Scotland's heritage assets by encouraging and developing a network of local civic trusts and other bodies, organisations and individuals in developing a greater awareness and appreciation of Scotland's heritage, and building their capacity to participate in the effective use of the built heritage resource by providing them with adequate knowledge, technical skills and support.

In line with Government and Historic Scotland policy the Trust recognises the importance and added value of the voluntary sector in delivering tangible benefits to the historic environment. 

The project has three key aims:

  • To increase participation in architecture, planning, and conservation matters
  • To increase knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the built and historic environment
  • To improve Scotland's townscapes and landscapes

We do this by:

  • Co-ordinating events
  • Producing support material 
  • Liaison, collaboration and communication with other organisations and strategic partners
