Adopt a Monument
A wide range of organisations and individuals care for the historic environment across the private, public and voluntary sectors.
Adopt-a-Monument continues to support community groups to explore, conserve and promote their local heritage. Over a hundred projects have been supported and their are currently 8 active projects. A unique attribute of Adopt-a-Monument is that it is community-led – the groups select monuments and sites that are meaningful to them and Adopt-a-Monument provides training, advice and guidance resulting in community groups developing new skills and taking that lead role in conserving their local heritage.
