Take Action

The Scottish Civic Trust is passionate about helping individuals and communities take an active role in their heritage, and our My Place Mentoring and Diverse Heritage projects can help you access the skills and knowledge to make your locality a better place.

If you’re interested in taking action in your local heritage, please take a look at our My Place Mentoring project. Our My Place Mentoring Officer can advise you on everything from fundraising, governance, community engagement and more.

In addition to supporting the development of local heritage projects, we are also working hard to make Scottish heritage more inclusive – the more voices we hear talking about our history, the richer our culture becomes. Our Diverse Heritage Officer connects with marginalised people nationwide to co-create heritage projects. In response to COVID-19, our Diverse Heritage project has also focussed on increasing digital heritage access and know-how amongst Scotland’s communities.
