Take Action

The Scottish Civic Trust is passionate about helping all individuals and communities take an active role in their heritage.

We have a network of over 100 local civic and heritage groups across Scotland. We support these groups by promoting their events and hosting a resources page with best practise for undertaking built environment projects, sourcing funding, creating digital heritage resources, diversifying audiences and membership and more.

We also support local groups with guidance on how to comment on planning applications, handle conservation area management, manage new development in historic settings and more. Over the past 40 years, the Scottish Civic Trust and our affiliated local groups have taken an active interest in the quality of development across Scotland. Well-informed independent opinion plays an important role in planning and we strongly encourage you to make sure local voices are heard!

Our Diverse Heritage team encourages everyone to share and celebrate their heritage by connecting with marginalised people nationwide to co-create heritage projects.
