Heritage is a powerful and positive force in the 21st century; stimulating economic growth, attracting tourism, providing a sustainable foundation for the renewal of local areas, encouraging a sense of citizenship and building community spirit.

The Heritage Alliance aims to demonstrate the importance of our heritage as a national asset that can deliver wide-ranging public benefits. It is a strong and independent voice for the sector, influencing and taking the lead to connect heritage with the big issues in modern society.  2010 is set to be a year of forward thinking, stronger campaigning and getting the message out loud and clear in all the right places.
