Heritage Compass is a free 2-year programme which will help 150 small and medium-sized heritage organisations from across England to grow and sustain their businesses.

We’ll be offering tailored training, mentoring, peer learning and strategy development, as well as the opportunity to move forward as part of a dynamic new cohort of Heritage Organisations. All of this support is totally free thanks to the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund (with access grants available to support eligible organisations with staff costs).
