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.

Our My Place Mentoring Officer supports community groups across Scotland to build their skills and capacity to undertake heritage projects. Our Mentoring support is perfect for groups looking to develop their knowledge in fundraising, governance, community engagement and more.

In addition to supporting local heritage projects, we are also working hard to make Scottish heritage more inclusive. 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.
