We are Impact Heritage, who are you?
We want to get to know you. You have a community archive or collection with a story to tell. Sometimes these archives can be difficult to access and that is a shame, but with our help and funding from great organisations we can put that to rights.
Did you know that millions of pounds are allocated to charitable works every year? That includes the big funders such as the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council, England as well as a host of less well known but consistent funding organisations such as The Pilgrim Trust and the Livery Companies.
These organisations are there to allocate money to projects that improve our well-being as a nation. Looking after vulnerable community collections is a way we can make sure all our stories and journeys are represented in our cultural lives.
Now, due to the difficulties caused by the pandemic we are in danger of losing valuable assets through no fault of our own. If Impact Heritage can help save even one community collection or archive during this most difficult of times, then we will be happy.
Contact us and tell us about your archive or collection.
Look at this archive. Every ham radio operator has a 'tag' identifying themselves - this brilliant archive at Amberley Museum displays the wide variety of tags issued, including the one used by Barbara Dunn, the first female ham operator in 1927.
