National Heritage is a charity supporting and encouraging museums and galleries in the UK. It also represents the interests of museum and gallery visitors and other users.
It is entirely run by volunteers, so every penny donated goes to support heritage, helping to engender good practice and improve visitor experience. An area which is currently in need of supprt is travel bursaries for heritage professionals and volunteers wishing to attend courses, seminars and conferences. National Heritage is delighted to support the heritage profession in this way.
