Impact Heritage CIC Welcomes You

Doing Business the Right Way

Our Aims

Enable access to vulnerable collections through collection care and conservation. Identify potential risks from storage and display environments, handling, physical or material stability or security.

Extend the lifespan of specialised and vulnerable collections by training and educating volunteers and all those who interact with the collection. We want you to have the skills to care for them into the future and bring them to life.

Support collections care staff and volunteers with simple costings and clear explanations of the needs of the collection that will enable external funding. Our support also extends to archive-based collections which may be under-utilised by the community through lack of resources. We aim to improve access by making the collection more materially stable and by engaging the wider community in their heritage through displays, talks and advocacy.

Connect heritage groups with professionals that can help them to achieve their own
aims, whether that is access, display, outreach or physical conservation treatment.

Raise the profile of conservation and create more links within conservation groups.

Explore methods of creating sustainable revenue streams from the collection to
enable it to be cared for and accessed in the future.

Transform collections from being seen as potential liabilities to assets that may be used for
fundraising, community engagement and wider influence.


We are Impact Heritage, what’s the point of us?

At Impact Heritage we offer collection care expertise, practical conservation and training for volunteers and people who work with collections in the community.

One of our aims is to find out what you need to care for your collections and tailor-make a training program, helping you develop a skills base within your community and create a legacy for the future.

Do you need training to clean and rehouse documents? Perhaps you need to set up a conservation space and don’t know where to start? We are here to help you find the skills, knowledge and resources to care for your treasures.

Small and large projects alike need an injection of money and proper planning to succeed. We have experience of this sector and can help you find the right funding for your project. Our assistance will enable you to build a successful grant application, because our surveys and assessments provide donors with the reassurance they need to allocate their money.

Please tell us about your collections and archives and what you need to tell your story and inspire the next generation.
